"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

Hunted

by Cheryl Rainfield
Publication Date: December 15, 2011

         "Well what didja come here for?"
         . . . Gotcha now. Nobody comes here for a good time. They come to repent, or to visit their love ones in Parajail, or to find others who wanna bring back the lynchings . . . but nobody ever comes here for a holiday–'cept for the Para Cleansing, but that's days away . . . "You here for Para Cleansing Day?"
(Page 23)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm part of the book tour for Hunted through A Novel Outing, and it is a really interesting dystopic paranormal novel.  It is also a departure from her first book Scars, which is realistic fiction about self-harm.  Both are fantastic, but what's interesting is that Hunted, while being paranormal also has a real world situation in it involving ritual abuse.  This detail that Cheryl included comes from experiences in her own life, and I think that adds so much to the book.

  4. Nice. Now I'm interested to find out what 'para-cleansing' is - sounds very ritualistic indeed. I am familiar with Cheryl's work, although I haven't had the chance to read through her books yet. Nice choice for a teaser.

    Here's my TT for the week:

  9. I read this one late last year and LOVED it. You picked a great teaser. I agree the "real-life" situations she pulled in made it so much more realistic.
