This week marks my fifth Teaser Tuesday post, and I chose Rachel Vincent’s “Soul Screamers, Volume One.” The words on the pages have sucked me into the story. Vincent knows how to tell a story, and how to hook her readers. Despite limited reading time, I am squeezing in wonderful moments to read on, even if the moments are only brief.
My teaser for today is found on page 19 (My Soul to Lose).
Teaser: Emma pulled free from my grip, her eyes wide in terror. And that’s when I shut down. I couldn’t take anymore, but I couldn’t make it stop. I couldn’t stop the shrieking, or the pain, or the stares, or the fog, or the eerie movement. And worst of all, I couldn’t stop the certainty that that child–that poor boy in the wheelchair–was going to die. –Rachel Vincent, 2011.
