Teaser Tuesday - 24th Feb 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!
This week my teasers are from an ARC of Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman.

Above the arch of the main hatch is a sign burned in wood that reads You are not the first and you will not be the last, and I marvel at how it makes me feel both insignificant and singled out at the same time. (Page 20)

The captain looks at me and shakes his head in disappointment. "Lie down with dogs, get up with rabies," he tells me unsympathetically. I don't think that's the actual expression, but I get the point. 


Caden Bosch is on a ship that's headed for the deepest point on Earth: Challenger Deep, the southern part of the Marianas Trench.

Caden Bosch is a brilliant high school student whose friends are starting to notice his odd behavior.

Caden Bosch is designated the ship's artist in residence, to document the journey with images.

Caden Bosch pretends to join the school track team but spends his days walking for miles, absorbed by the thoughts in his head.

Caden Bosch is split between his allegiance to the captain and the allure of mutiny.

Caden Bosch is torn.

A captivating and powerful novel that lingers long beyond the last page, Challenger Deep is a heartfelt tour de force by one of today's most admired writers for teens.

  1. Sounds like an interesting read. Hope you are enjoying it. Here is mine

  2. I'm not sure I'd want to be that deep under the ocean! I'm playing today at Beth Fish Reads.

  3. I love anything to do with ocean and would check it out for that reason alone. I have read about some of the things that can be found in the Marianas Trench. Watch out for Megladon!

    1. Thanks Sherry, and yes, a fair amount of the story is set at sea..

  4. Now I'm with Sherry! This is definitely one for me. I'm reading a book now that ties into the trench. I'm off to spend a gift card!

    My TT -

  5. Oh I'm definitely going to read this! My tease this week is from Alice Hoffman's upcoming release. It's a "middle-grade" book but absolutely lovely!
