Teaser Tuesday: The Boy in the Smoke by Maureen Johnson

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!

The Boy in the Smoke by Maureen Johnson.

The Boy in the Smoke –
Hot Key Books

Was this actually happening? Was his father threatening him, physically, here on the Eton parking grounds?
— Chapter 2

Things change. Never act as if situations won’t change.
— Chapter 2

You don’t need to have read the Shades of London series (but seriously why haven’t you?) to enjoy this short story. And if you have read them (and currently suffer from the really mean cliffhanger) then you get some neat additional information about a certain character. And the best part? You can read this story online for free if you click here.

So true, things always change. Good teasers.

Both are good teasers. This is a new series for me. I'll check it out. Looks like a dystopian, maybe?

Ain't that the truth. Change is inevitable, and certainly a challenge when you become so accustomed to what the previous changed invoked. Thanks for sharing! :)

So true! Change is the one thing you can definitely count on. Sounds like a good story, especially for free!
Here's the link to my Tuesday post: Tumbleweeds.

Great teasers! I'm really curious about the story because of the first one. I wonder why his dad was threatening him??

Great teaser! I've had The Name of the Star sitting on my shelf (unread) for an embarrassingly long time. Thank you for the reminder that I need to pick it up. :)
