Teaser Tuesday: Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To 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!  

Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan.

Unspoken - Random House
Books for Young Readers

Every town in England has a story. One day I am going to find out Sorry-in-the-Vale’s.
-- Chapter 1

“And I teach Cambridge because she feeds me and because she’ll need these skills to get out of situations she will inevitably throw herself into. It’s all very equitable. Which reminds me, Angela, I’m a crazed drug dealer, desperate for the change in your jeans pockets. What do you do?”
-- Chapter 5

Maybe you remember that Unspoken was our Waiting on Wednesday at some point. And I can definitely say that this is one of the books that belongs to the category “worth the wait”. I like a book with witty banter and good humour and this one has plenty of it. Not pointless or forced either. I won’t say more since I think you should discover this cast of characters and the clever story yourself.

What are you reading at the moment?

I LOVED this book! It was definitely worth the wait, right? The wit and humor was endless and it was just so good all around. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Unspoken is definitely a top favorite and Jared Lynburn is perfect. Thanks for sharing :)
