teaser tuesday (#1)

hello friends.

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. (Although I first stumbled across it on Alice's Severe Book Addiction.) Here's how it works:
  • Grab your current read
  • Turn to a random page
  • Share a few 'teaser' sentences from that page (remember, NON-spoilery!)
  • Don't forget to share the title, author and page number of the book your teasers came from. That way, if others like your teasers, they can add the book to their TBR lists
Last night I started Francisco Stork's The Last Summer of the Death Warriors, a sort of modern day YA take on Cervantes' epic Don Quixote saga. It grabbed my attention from the first page and I plowed through about a third of it in one sitting before sweet slumber smothered me with her silky embrace.

Here's the teaser, from p. 102:

"What do you think about death?"

Pancho jerked his head back like someone had hit him with an invisible jab. "Death? It happens. People die all the time. It doesn't bother me anymore."

"It doesn't scare you?"

"Hell no! Why would it?" He thought suddenly of the revolver in his backpack. Then he thought of his sister. The idea of death filled him with anger, hatred, a suffocating urgency, remorse even, but there was no fear anywhere. Then he realized:
Maybe that's what D.Q. wants. When he turned, he saw a mysterious grin on Father Concha's face.
