Teaser Tuesday – Joy School

teasertuesdays3TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
    Let the book fall open to a random page.
    Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
    You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
    Please avoid spoilers!

“They’re fourteen, and they’re twins, Greg and Marsha.  I believe they are relatives of the devil.”

Joy School by Elizabeth Berg, page 21

I’m loving this book so far!  Grab your book and leavea comment 🙂

  1. Well, that could be said of all fourteen-year-olds, right? Nice teasers.

    I’m pretty sure it could!

  2. I don’t know what is today, but everyone’s teasers — including yours — are making me laugh. That’s a good thing, right?

    There are lots of good ones today.

  3. I hope that’s ironic! Nice teaser.

    Greg and Marsha are not nice kids 🙂

  4. Ha ha! The author must be a “Brady Bunch” fan, though I believe that Greg and Marsha were insanely good…

    I know! She had me hooked at Greg and Marsha and then she made me laugh out loud 🙂

  6. So it is a comedy then??

    Actually, no. I would call it a heartfelt coming of age story. I think that’s why that line made me laugh. It was unexpected.

  9. Now I am intrigued as well! I’ve only read one Elizabeth Berg which was so-so, but this really sounds intriguing 😉

    Here’s mine, but you already saw that 🙂

    I really enjoy Elizabeth Berg. I’ve had this on my shelf for awhile and now I’m mad that it took me so long to read it 🙂

  12. Haha, I agree! But I don’t think they’re relatives – they just have to be the devil! Fun teaser! Even the title sounds impossible – what joy is school? j/k 😉


    I loved school! But I would never go back 🙂

    Here’s my own TT.

  15. Another Berg fan I see. I haven’t gotten to her yet but it looks like I will enjoy her immensely – thanks for the super funny Teaser.

    I’ve enjoyed those of hers I’ve read. Review will be up tomorrow.

  17. Good teaser – I have close relatives that I think may be a relative of the devil too 🙂

    That’s funny! 🙂

  18. HAHAHAHAHA! I think I might have been related to them when I was 14! Thank goodness I outgrew it.
