Teaser Tuesday: Perfect Life ~ Jessica Shattuck

March 9, 2010

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!


Later, after everything, after Neil had come and gone again from their day-to-day lives, Laura had a memory of that other time, a million years ago it seemed, when they had all been college students, living in that cushy, all-American holding pen for almost-adults, reading books and people cooked for, drinking five nights a week, and worrying over nothing more than term papers and social gaffes. Perfect Life by Jessica Shattuck (prologue)
