Teaser Tuesdays with Instructions for a Broken Heart

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!
My teaser: 

"The restaurant walls were too close, pressing in at Jessa at odd, fragmented angles. The tables all seemed a bit too snug, the chairs too small, and Jessa felt suddenly like Alice, fumbling her way through Wonderland." ~Instructions for a Broken Heart by Kim Culbertson, p78

Kim Culbertson is amazing. Her first novel, Songs for a Teenage Nomad, was beautiful. This one is too. I am so, so jealous of her writing talent. And Jennifer Echols wrote the blurb on the cover of this one comparing it too Sarah Dessen's books. Double score! And she's totally right.
