This week's teasers are coming in Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson (GoodReads, Amazon):

"I wonder if they called him down to Principal Prinicpal's office and put this on his Permanent Record. He has stopped working on his canvas, the painting we all thought was going to be this awesome, earth-shattering piece of art that would be auctioned for a million dollars. The art room is cold, Mr. Freeman's face a shade of gray-purple. If he wasn't so depressed, I'd ask him what the name of that color is. He just sits on his stool, a blue broken cricket husk."
~From page 91~

Well, that's all for this week's teasers. I hope you enjoyed them! Happy 2011, everyone!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading what you have to say, whether good or bad. (This is not an open invitation to be rude.)

This blog is an award-free zone. I simply don't have the time to pass them on. Thanks for thinking of me, though :).
