Teaser Tuesday: Diverse Energies edited by Tobias S. Buckell & Joe Monti

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!

Happy Tuesday, Teasers!  I'm finally back from vacation (and finally feeling better after being sick for almost a WEEK!), and back to reading. This week I'm reading an collection of YA futuristic/dystopian short stories called Diverse Energies, all of which feature characters of various races and sexual orientations.  This teaser is taken from Uncertainty Principle by K. Tempest Bradford (page 33 on my nook), which is one of my favourite stories in the book:

Less severe than the last, the pain dissipated almost as soon as she felt it. Her eyes stayed open, so she saw the classroom walls turn from white to dingy gray. The desks changed, too, now looking older and more abused than they had before. Panic bloomed in her stomach. What, or who, had she lost this time?
