Taste Testing Tuesdays....on a Wednesday!


Good afternoon (or whatever time it is where you are), everyone!
Welcome to another installment of Taste Testing Tuesdays here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!  Taste Testing Tuesdays was inspired by 'Teaser Tuesdays', a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.  Though usually done on a Tuesday (hence the MEME name), a tastey book is best sampled any day of the week so why not on Wednesday?
 
On the menu this week...an ebook I've had waiting in the wings for a while and if it wasn't for my reading schedule I totally would have started it sooner.
Ready for a taste?
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Bernie went on, “A fad starts as an idea, something somebody thinks people might like. So that somebody turns the idea into an actual thing. And if lots and lots and lots of people like the thing, and ridiculous numbers of them want one and get one, that’s called a fad.”
“How many people have to like the thing?” asked Aggie.
“So many that almost no one hasn’t heard of it, at least.”
-- pg 3, Aggie's Nine Heroes by Diana Laurence

This is an unusal book to say the least but good nonetheless.  It's a YA pick that features a young girl that see's the world differently....in part from her imagination, and in part from her upbringing.  You see her parents died when she was only a tot and her grandfather (Bernie) has been raising her ever sense but he's not a cookie cutter character in the least.  He has an (often unspoken of) illness that while doesn't sit right out in front of him and wave hi to folks, it does or rather can interfer with day to day life in a most dramatic way.  Enjoying the book so far and anticipate finishing it before week's end.  Stay tuned for the  review!

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
*Open to a random page
*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
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 participants can add the book to their TBR.* 

 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Until next time....happy reading!

That's an interesting teaser, and quite true too.

I will be looking forward to your review.
