First Chapter ~ First Paragraph and Teaser Tuesday

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . . 





First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros now hosted by Yvonne at Socrates' Book Reviews, where bloggers share excerpts from a book they have read, are currently reading, or are planning to read.

Teaser Tuesday hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker, where bloggers post two teaser sentences (no spoilers allowed) from a random page of their current read. 

Today I'm featuring Such a Fun Age, a debut novel by Kiley Reid. The excerpts shared are from an ARC provided by the publisher at a library conference.

  

Book Beginning:  Part One 
One

That night, when Mrs. Chamberlain called, Emira could only piece together the words ". . . take Briar somewhere . . ."  and  ". . . pay you double."

Teaser:  "There's a video?" Tamra asked.  She looked to Alix with a face that said, I knew it.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
This novel tells an absorbing, captivating story of intersecting lives through the lenses of race, class, gender, and privilege. Its spotlight on how one's previous life experiences continue to influence behavior and decisions makes Such a Fun Age an important commentary on contemporary society, with much-needed moments for personal reflection.

I've read several reviews that were quite positive about this book. Hope it goes well for you. Are you reading a lot or struggling with it right now? Seems most are one way or the other. LOL

I don't know if the first sentence would get me hooked, but the description sounds interesting.
