"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

Teaser Tuesday (54)

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 a few teaser sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • MAKE SURE NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (you don't want to give too much away and ruin the book for other readers)
Share the title and author too, so that other readers can add your book to their TBR list if they like your teaser!

         Bullshit!  All you do is risk this deep dark secret of yours.  You shouldn't have broken up that fight.  You shouldn't have gotten chummy with Brandon.  You didn't listen to me either time and now Jeff Dean is gunning for you.  The one thing you should do you won't because it's risky? Gimme a break.
(Pg. 58)






-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This book is heartbreaking.  Utterly devastating, and very current with the times.  With all the cyberbullying and face-to-face bullying going on in society, Send is a book that needs to be read.  Probably one of my favorite contemporaries of this year.
