Teaser Tuesdays: a rare thing in Podunk

It’s that time again — and here’s the prompt!

  • 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!

And here’s mine:

So I piled all the money back in the basket and set it aside. It was about then that we heard police sirens, which is a pretty rare thing in Podunk, so we ran to the window and saw Lawnmower’s old rusty Camaro speed by and right behind it was a police car, almost certainly McNutt, and he zoomed by too.

The book is The Movie, by Bosley Gravel, who IMHO is a writer you Should Be Watching. And I’m not just saying that to be nice, Mr. Gravel.

      Thanks for your comment, Flo!

      Probably should have mentioned in my post — The Movie was a 2011 New Mexico Book Award finalist …

    This teaser pulled me in, enough to look up the book, and I was able to find an excerpt of it on Google books. Looks very trippy – in a good way trippy (this saying probably dates me, lol). Thanks for the tease. :)

      Cool, Mardel — you’ll have to stop back if you end up picking up a copy and we’ll compare notes!
