Today's Read: Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A. S. King

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.

Here's mine:

The thing you don't see while you're still there on Earth is how easy it is to change your mind. When you're in it and you're mixed up with feelings, assumptions, influences, and misconceptions, things seem completely impossible to change. From here you see that change is as easy as flicking a light switch in your brain. (pp. 49-50)
—From Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A. S. King

Today is the launch day for A. S. King's newest novel, Please Ignore Vera Dietz, which has already become a Junior Library Guild selection for fall 2010. Once you start reading this sassy, funny, touching novel, you won't be able to stop.

Here's the publisher's summary:
Vera’s spent her whole life secretly in love with her best friend, Charlie Kahn. And over the years she’s kept a lot of his secrets. Even after he betrayed her. Even after he ruined everything.

So when Charlie dies in dark circumstances, Vera knows a lot more than anyone—the kids at school, his family, even the police. But will she emerge to clear his name? Does she even want to?

Edgy and gripping, Please Ignore Vera Dietz is an unforgettable novel: smart, funny, dramatic, and always surprising.
Look for a full review in the weeks to come. In the meantime be sure to check out A. S. King's website and blog for more information, tour dates, and contests.

I read your teaser on twitter, then clicked over to Julie's review ... This does sound like a super book that asks a lot of questions teens (and adults!) wonder about.

Enlightening teaser that makes me think of the mental tangle we can create when deciding even the smallest thing.

Catchy title to this book.

[...] change is as easy as flicking a light switch in your brain. I agree with this. I've done it many times and it worked! That's a great teaser.

The title of this post confused me at first "please ignore" apparently triggers an instand reaction in my brain :)
