This week, my teaser is from Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley. I saw it at the library and noticed it had won not a single award, but two from the American Library Association: the Printz and the William C. Morris. According to the blurb there are zombies and talking birds, though I haven't reached either of them yet (other than references to zombies, which the character (like a lot of people) seems to treat as fictional but worth theorizing over).
(I really like this cover. It has a nice folk art feel to it and I love the central illustration of the woodpecker.)
When one is sitting the passenger seat of his best friend's car as an overly enthusiastic hillbilly is ranting in the backseat about being snubbed by a cheerleader at lunch, his mind begins to wander and think about zombies. Here's the thing about zombies: They are supposed to be killed.-p. 14
What are you reading? Got a teaser from it?
