TEASER TUESDAYSis hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading and asks you to:
The fact was that Edward did not love his school, but no one bothered him there. At Eastbrook Junior High School, Edward Meopian was not a wallflower but more like a hearty, imperceptible weed.
This great teaser is from Christopher Meeks’ novel The Brightest Moon of the Century. It’s on only the second page of the first chapter/story in the novel. Edward’s widowed father is threatening to send his son to the McCory School, a private boys’ school; Edward is opposed to the idea, since he likes the way he blends in with the crowd at Eastbrook.
The novel has an on-sale date of March 7, but I happen to know that you can order it now. If you were intrigued by my review of Months and Seasons, or read all the positive press about The Middle-Aged Man and the Sea, get yourself to a bookstore and order The Brightest Moon of the Century. Now.
Tell me, did you stand out from the masses in school, or were you more content to blend in? I was definitely a “no waves on the surface” kind of student – good grades, decent outward conduct … but, like an iceberg, you never knew what lay beneath the waters!
