Teaser Tuesday: Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald

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!  

Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Amy McDonald.

Getting Over Garrett Delaney - Candlewick Press

“The only way they’ll ever discover great literature is if someone makes a Disney sing-along,” I say. “Anna Karenina: the dance-off.”
-- Chapter 1
“Sure, they’re just adorable,” she says. “For the first five minutes. And then I want to wring their adorable little necks.”
-- Chapter 7

This is such a sweet and uncomplicated story, nothing sinister or violent lurking here. Yet at the same time it’s about a very serious problem most of us face at some point: Being in unrequited love ... with your best friend (that part is optional). This book could be shallow, obnoxious, and absolutely boring, but it is nothing like that. I instantly liked Sadie and they way the story is written. Sure, it might not be a deep, epic plot, but it is a fun read with witty dialogue and a great cast of characters. Perfect if you’re looking for something quick and entertaining.

Tease us with your current reads in the comments.

This reminds me of "Perfect Chemistry" which I liked. Sometimes I like simple, quick and entertaining--will keep this in mind. I just finished a slow complicated, confusing one which didn't appeal to me at all (Playing Dead).

I love the idea of a Disney version of Anna Karenina! This sounds like a book with plenty of humor, and one I'd enjoy.
My teaser this week is from The Lie.
