Teaser Tuesday (35): Scan by Sarah Fine and Walter Jury

teasertuesday13


Teaser Tuesday 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’s Teaser comes from the following book:


Title: Scan
Authors: Walter Jury, Sarah Fine
Publisher: Putnam
Source:  Publisher
Expected Pub: May 1, 2014

Pre-order: Amazon  |  B&N

From Goodreads:

Tate and his father don’t exactly get along. As Tate sees it, his father has unreasonably high expectations for Tate to be the best—at everything. Tate finally learns what he’s being prepared for when he steals one of his dad’s odd tech inventions and mercenaries ambush the school, killing his father in the process and sending Tate on the run from aliens who look just like humans. 



All Tate knows--like how to make weapons out of oranges and lighter fluid--may not be enough to save him as he’s plunged into a secret inter-species conflict that’s been going on for centuries. Aided only by his girlfriend and his estranged mother, with powerful enemies closing in on all sides, Tate races to puzzle out the secret behind his father’s invention and why so many are willing to kill for it. A riveting, fast-paced adventure, Scan is a clever alien thriller with muscle and heart.

My teaser:

“I reach for my father's hand, and he lets me take it.  For the first time since God-knows-when, I'm his boy and he's my dad, and I wonder how we lost this."
                                                                                               - Pg 72

I’d love to know what your Teaser is!
