Teaser Tuesday: Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith

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!

Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith.

Wild Awake -
Katherine Tegen Books

But there’s a crazy little hope-squirrel running around inside my head, chattering, What if it’s real? What if it’s important? and it won’t shut up no matter what I do.
-- Page 39

I play the first and second movements of the Italian Concerto, a thirty-page baroque extravaganza that Bach apparently wrote to amuse himself while waiting in line to buy a Wiener schnitzel.
-- Page 108

I started reading Wild Awake a few days ago and I think, the title fits perfectly. Kiri Byrd is a very wild girl, getting stoned with her best friend, playing piano until she falls off the bench and meeting up a with a complete stranger to get her dead sister's things back. And all this time she won't sleep. She's on a mission to find out, how her sister lived and died. Falling in love might be the least crazy thing for Kiri at this time. I like her quirkiness and her unusual toughts and just hope for a non-fairytale ending.

Which books are you currently reading? Tease us in the comments.

I like the thought of a hope-squirrel. Come see my teasers for Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh and Ink by Amanda Sun. Happy reading!
