"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 (31)

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)

         When no one was around, Mrs. F;emsky liked to chant Yiddish in a vaguly musical tone.  "Oy gevalt oy gevalt oygevaltoygevalt.  Oy oy oy oyoyoyoyoyoyoy" ina constant refrain.  Alex had pinched me in the side and led me to the solarium.
         "I had to get out  of there," she said.  "It's like Intro to Yiddish.  Yiddish 101."
         "Like a  cappella klezmer music," I said.
         "Oyoyoy," my sister sang.

Cures for Heartbreak is another book that I discovered while making my reading list for my Books & Related Materials for Young Adults class (there's going to be A LOT of those in the next couple weeks).  It is one of my picks for realistic fiction, and it is really great so far.  It is not a happy book, but it is funny in places, which alleviates the seriousness.  There is a big emphasis on survival that I found really poignant.  I'm really enjoying the book so far.
