Teaser Tuesday - April 14


Today's teaser comes from Everyone is Beautiful by Katherine Center.

I have to confess that I handpicked this quote. And it's more than two sentences. I'm breaking all the rules today. I'm just so in love with the voice of the main character. She's a real woman and the author is brilliantly bringing her to life. Any book that can use the word "goober" is a good one.

From page 41

I stayed on the floor. The fall had deflated me. I didn't belong here. What kind of goober falls off a treadmill?

Ohhhh - I absolutely LOVED this book! I liked it so much that I've read it twice so far. Yes - this scene was a good one, and I love to hand-pick teasers on occasion. :)

It's so fun to see this quote from Everyone Is Beautiful here for Teaser Tuesday! Thank you for your kind words about my novel and the voice of the main character. I'm so glad you liked the book. And I agree--"goober" is a great word! I need to remember to use it more.
Many thanks again!!
