He won‘t look you in the eye. And if you pause to speak to someone else for a brief moment, you might turn back to find that Jacob‘s left the room. - Emma ~pg. 9

I don‘t get into trouble because rules are what keep me sane. Rules mean that the day is going to go exactly the way I am predicting it to be. I do what I‘m told; I just wish everyone else would do it, too. - Jacob ~pg. 18

Teaser Tuesdays' Rules

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!

I like Picoult, but this one seems to be written in the same fashion as My Sister's Keeper, every characters are becoming the center of each chapter. I hate it when she does that, I like it better if she writes it normaly.

Love the last teaser tho.

There are some grammatical mistakes in your post, but otherwise I found it somewhat useful.
I don't think it's up to anyone to judge what people's posts should be about. Why not allow everyone to just say what they want (in designated threads, ofcourse)?
How do I make my blog appear in search engines? I had it for a year, and no one comes to visit.
It's not a good idea to make me upset, and when my comments get removed I get really sad.
