Teaser Tuesday: Mind Games by Kiersten White

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!

Mind Games by Kiersten White.

Mind Games – Harper Teen

Because if he doesn’t die today, Annie will, and that is one death I cannot have on my conscience.
Why did he have to help the puppy?
— Chapter 2

“What are you doing?”
“Wondering if a fourteen-year-old who is an accessory to murder can be tried as an adult.”
— Chapter 12

Kiersten White immediately got my attention with her Paranormalcy trilogy. I absolutely loved Evie as a character and narrator. Mind Games is told from two points of view, Fia and Annie, whose individual characteristics create a really interesting blend and contrast narration for this clever story. Adding to this is the fact that the story is told in sections of present and back-flashes and you basically have four narrators. This could be more confusing than instructions on operating a space ship but this is thankfully not the case. I’m still trying to decide who of the two sisters is the deadlier one though ...

Let us know about your teasers in the comments.

Ooh this one sounds good. Is it confusing to follow with the constant change of time and point of view?
