"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 (61)

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!
Pretty Crooked
by Elisa Ludwig
Publication Date: March 13, 2012

        Still, I kept moving, breathing hard, and leaning forward to urge my old bike on. The wind whipped against my hoodie, taunting me with its ease. Coyotes called to each other in the distance, their high-pitched whimpering like balloons loosing air. Or was that the sound of fate catching up to me?
        I am so completely dead, I thought.
(Pg. 1)

I got this books last year in a giveaway, and it's been sitting on my shelf ever since.  so in light of my 2013 TBR Pile Reading Challenge, I've decided to pick it up.  And it was a very good decision because this book is filled with humor and awesome pop culture references.  Willa is such a fun protagonist to follow, and I can't wait to learn more about her "robin hood" escapades.  Valley Prep is just like those schools you hear about from TV, rich and discriminating, but Willa is working to change all that!  Fun and quick, I think you should all check out Pretty Crooked!
