Teaser Tuesday

This is a book I´ve been saving up because I know I´m going to love it. O´Nan is an enormously talented writer (go read A Prayer for the Dying if you haven´t already).


It was the summer of her Chevette, of J.P. and letting her hair grow.

The last summer, the best summer, the summer they´d dreamed of since eighth grade, the high and pride of being seniors lingering, an  extension of their best year.

(Stewart O´Nan: Songs for the Missing. 1)


Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should Be Reading and this is how it works:

  • 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!

  1. Interesting teaser! I love the cover of the book – it looks like it will reveal a few secrets on closer viewing 🙂

  2. I cheated on this. I had this read to me as an audio book in German. Didn’t like it that much, but I suppose it gets better when one reads it. Lots of confusing namedropping, wonder if he got paid big bucks by some corporate companies for that!!

    1. Wow, ein Kommentar-beendest du damit dein Stalker-Dasein? ;D

      Hab noch keine großartigen Namen und so bemerkt, aber das ist mir meistens auch egal. Bin aber auch erst am Anfang. Schade, dass es die nicht gefallen hat. Ich finde die Story toll, und den Stil wundervoll!
