Today's Read: Need by Carrie Jones

My first morning in Maine, I have didaskaleinophobia. Huh, you don't know the word? Fear of going to school. I know the names of all the phobias. It helps me feel in control. Like the string I wear around my finger to help me remember my step-dad . . . who died . . . back in Charleston . . . where my mom is. Betty, my grandmother—okay, step-grandmother—is letting me stay with her. She's cool though; she's even an EMT. But something is odd about this town, and I'm not talking about the ugly work boots the guys wear. I found some huge paw prints in the snow near my car, along with some gold glittery stuff. What's up with that?

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.

The howling wakes me up in the middle of the night.
It is a long noise, full of grief.
I shudder and sit up in bed.
Something outside howls again. It's not too far away.
Coyotes? (p. 16)

I love this teaser. Coyotes? I have a feeling not, however, I have a similar reaction when I hear coyotes outside. They are creepy.

Mine is here.

I'm guessing like so many others that it's not coyotes. My teaser is from Brideshead Revisited.

Julie P. 1/19/10, 12:53 PM  

Sounds like an interesting narrator! I'm curious to hear your thoughts about this book.

Margot 1/19/10, 1:57 PM  

I like the way you wrote your "Where are you". It sounds like you have the character down pat.

Unknown 1/19/10, 2:55 PM  

I got Need for Xmas and am excited to get to it in my pile :o)

Nise' 1/19/10, 3:02 PM

Wow, what a teaser. Very intriguing. I'll have to check back for your review.

Wow, definitely grabbed my attention. I wonder who the paw print and howl belong to.

raidergirl3 1/19/10, 8:37 PM  

Hi Beth,
things sound strange in Maine!

kayerj 1/19/10, 10:33 PM  

I'd be staying in my bed with the covers over my head!

Anonymous,  1/20/10, 4:07 PM  

Ooh, me thinks not coyotes. But I wouldn't be too eager to find out what was really making that sound! Great teaser :)
