Teaser Tuesday - 27th Jan 2015


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!
My teaser is taken from The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma. I received a free copy from NetGalley for review but the book's expected publication date is March 24th 2015. I've only read 33 pages so far (because it's in a weird format, which isn't compatible with my kindle so I can only read on my computer), but so far it's awesomeness! 

Here is my teaser:

Some of us knew for sure it was a Saturday, the first one of August. Some of us kept track of days, as Lian did (her charge was manslaughter, like mine, though her weapon was a handgun and she had only ninety-nine days remaining on her sentence; I had far more).





Synopsis:

The Walls Around Us is a ghostly story of suspense told in two voices - one still living and one long dead. On he outside, there's Violet, an eighteen-year-old dancer days away from the life of her dreams when something threatens to expose the shocking truth of her achievement. On the inside, within the walls of a girls' juvenile detention center, there's Amber, locked up for so long she can't imagine freedom. Tying these two worlds together is Orianna, who holds the key to unlocking all the girls' darkest mysteries.

We hear Amber's story and Violet's, and through them Orianna's, first from one angle, then from another, until gradually we begin to get the whole picture - which is not necessarily the one that either Amber or Violet wants us to see.

Nova Ren Suma tells a supernatural tale of guilt and innocence, and what happens when one is mistaken for the other.

  2. From your comment, it sounds like the story being told from two perspectives is working well. Great when they do.

    Thanks for coming by my TT for Terminal Freeze by Lincoln Child: http://wp.me/pZnGI-hW

    1. It definitely is. With some books a dual POV gets very confusing and although in The Walls Around Us it makes me think more, it's not overwhelming. Not yet anyway!

  10. Hmm, sounds interesting! I've seen this around a few places, but this is the first time I actually read the synopsis. It could be good, or it could be too creepy for me.

  11. Great review! I think I need my next book to be a bit of a light read but will defo add this to TBR list when I'm after something a bit more dark and sinister :-)

    1. Yes, you might want to read something else before the Walls Around Us since it is definitely dark. I wish I had received a kindle format via NetGalley though; it would make it far easier to read.

    1. Really? In that case I might download it too since the format I received via NetGalley isn't compatible with my ereader so I have to read it on my laptop.
