Teaser Tuesday: THIS IS WHAT HAPPY LOOKS LIKE by Jennifer E. Smith

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading. Here are the rules:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open it to a random page
  • Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO REVEAL SPOILERS! (Be sure not to spoil the book for others!
  • Make sure your sentences don't reveal something important!)
  • Include the title and author to, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

"'Hey,' he said, glancing up at her and then away again.  For some reason he was having trouble looking at her directly, though it was all he wanted to do at the moment."--pg. 127

...and a little more b/c I just loved this paragraph :-).

"Everything around them was gray--the trees, the rocks, the sky, even the slate-colored water--and in the midst of it all, there was Ellie, with her red hair and white T-shirt, her jean skirt and rubber flip-flops.  It should have been the most ordinary thing in the world--this girl on the beach--but somehow, it felt to Graham like he was staring at the sun."--pg. 127

I am loving this book right now, everything about it.  I've never read Jennifer E. Smith before, but my introduction to her work couldn't be better :).

Happy reading,
