Teaser Tuesdays: November 11, 2008

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

    Does this sound like anyone you know:

    She had been spending seventeen hours per day at the office and another five on her music.  Her taxing schedule had been the result of her job’s mandates and her personal obsession, and it had become clear that both ends of the spectrum were suffering as a result of her split attention.

    It describes Whitney, the protagonist in Christine Son’s Off the Menu.  Whitney works at a law firm by day, but harbors a desire to succeed as a singer.  Whitney and her friends Hercules and Audrey are something of a “Joy Luck Club” for a younger generation.  I’ll be reviewing Off the Menu as part of Christine Son’s TLC Book Tour this Friday.
