"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 (04)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be ReadingAnyone 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!
XVI by Julia Karr

     "You know Media's version. The GC controls the Media, and shapes people's perception of what goes on.  They've been doing it for at least two centuries.  Your father spoke out against their manipulation and GC's interference."
     "But...but things are good," I said, more out of anger than true belief.  I thought back to my conversation with Gran.  "Life used to be awful–wars, incurable diseases, hunger, homelessess.  now everything is the way it should be."
     Sal stared at me, his eyes opened wide. "You believe that?"
(pg. 140)
