Teaser Tuesdays #21 ~ The One

teaser free-clip-art

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

Today my teaser is from ~ The One

the one
The time has come for one winner to be crowned.

When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon’s heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she’ll have to fight for the future she wants.

From page 99 in Hardcover

I stood as tall as I could manage. “I’m not just going to sit here. I’ve been chased by rebels once already, and I’m fine.”
“But those weren’t Southerners,” Maxon countered.
“I’m going,” I said. “And we’re wasting time.”
“To be clear, no one agrees with you.”
“To be clear, I don’t care.”

I love heroines that are tough! I’m not talking all alpha female, but I don’t like them to be wussies. America doesn’t disappoint!

I can’t believe I just now got to this book. It was the book I looked most forward to last year, but never read. Go figure!

Well, I’ve rectified the problem, and now I’d actually like to start the series over. I loved it that much! I’ll be posting my review in the next couple weeks!

Be sure to share your teasers!!

Happy Reading,

Alison
