Teaser Tuesday with Divergent

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!
I finally got my copy of Divergent by Veronica Roth from the library. It had a huge reserved list, but it was well worth the wait. It's an intriguing YA dystopian with a fresh voice. I love the world Roth has created. So many possibilities!

Here's your teaser:
This is crazy, and I know it. A fraction of an inch of mistake, half a second of hesitation, and my life is over. (page 146)
