[Teaser Tuesdays]: There Will Be Lies by Nick Lake

Hosted by: Miz B @ Should Be Reading
Teaser Tuesdays asks you to post a quote or excerpt from your current read.

• 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!

There Will be Lies by Nick Lake
To be published on January 6, 2015 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens

In four hours, Shelby Jane Cooper will be struck by a car. Shortly after, she and her mother will leave the hospital and set out on a winding journey toward the Grand Canyon.
All Shelby knows is that they’re running from dangers only her mother understands. And the further they travel, the more Shelby questions everything about her past—and her current reality. Forced to take advantage of the kindness of unsuspecting travelers, Shelby grapples with what’s real, what isn’t, and who she can trust . . . if anybody.

I searched long and hard for a snippet without any spoilers that would make you guys want to pick this one up. The main character is definitely relatable so far, but I'm definitely in that "in-between-stage" where I can't tell if I like the novel yet or not...

My Teaser:

"This is all wrong, anyway, I think, remembering the book in the library, the open one. You're meant to see the coyote BEFORE the horrible thing happens to you. Not after." 
~ Page  40ish: There Will Be Lies by Nick Lake

  6. I really like this book. I've seen a lot of books this year with the word "lie" or "liar." Always makes me interested for some reason. Really, I might have seen just three.

  7. I'm curious about the significance of an open book in a library. I'm also wondering what they're running from. Sounds like a good story.
