Teaser Tuesday (4/2/13) - Shark Bait by Jenn Cooksey

Teaser Tuesday 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists 
if they like your teasers.

This weeks teaser is from Shark Bait by Jenn Cooksey - Amazon has this on sale for .99 cents (like below - trust me, it is the best .99 cents you'll ever spend).

Shark Bait (Grab Your Pole #1)
Published: June 15, 2012

Previously homeschooled Camie Ramsey is being shoved into the shark-infested waters of public high school, where even helium filled, penguin bespeckled arm floaties likely won’t help keep her inexperienced, fifteen-year old head above water in that rip current of hormones and emotions.

Camie’s worldly wisdom might be severely lacking (i.e., the closest she’s come to being kissed was sitting too close to the TV whilst Jake Ryan leaned in to give Samantha that fateful 16th birthday kiss), but she does understand her only hope for survival is if she’s thrown some kind of “social” life preserver before she sinks like a freaking rock. However, what will her fate be when she endeavors to flag down the only lifeguard on duty, the enormously popular and ridiculously beautiful Tristan Daniels? The most sought after and virtually most unattainable guy in school who not only makes Camie’s heart flatline on a recurring basis, he’s also the one guy who seemingly doesn’t know she exists.

Feeling like an inept piece of chum that could ultimately be swallowed by Jaws, can Camie get Tristan to rescue her from floundering in the treacherous deep, or is she destined to be Shark Bait?

Here are the teasers:

I'd like to go on record right now by saying that in addition to beautiful weather; San Diego also has a plethora of saliva producing boys.  

WHOA.  Insert choice expletive here _______, because I got nothin'.  In fact, I consciously told myself to close my mouth and then I surreptitiously checked my chin for slobber.
“I need a freaking alarm clock to wake me up because my first damned class is at (now get this…) 7:15 in the morning! I mean what are we? Chickens? Seriously, who in their right mind can even think straight that early, let alone do math?”


  1. Lol...I would imagine the shock of going from home schooled to public high school would be pretty big....especially having to get up early in the morning. Good teaser!

  2. This looks fun. My kids were homeschooled and my daughter was 15 when she started high school. I bet she'd enjoy this.Here's Mine
