Teaser Tuesday: Above by Leah Bobet #teasertuesday #above

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
•BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week I'm reading Above by Leah Bobet. I wasn't too sure about this book when I first started it, but it's really grown on me now, and I'm really enjoying it. I hate to put it down and can't wait to pick it up again. Here are my teasers from page 74 of my nook:

The Whitecoat house in the park stands silent, window-broke and windblown in the middle of the overgrown field. Empty as  a bricked-off subway tunnel. The shadows flow into it, stripping the sparkel from the bits of broken glass. They puddle darkness on its rooftops like a growing sore: Whitecoat place. Bad place. Abandon hope all ye who enter here.
