Teaser Tuesday: Into the Wild Nerd Yonder

So I always forget about Teaser Tuesday until the day is almost over (and I'm catching up on my blog reading for the day) But every once in awhile, I remember early enough to post one. So here's my Teaser Tuesday! (This meme is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading)

Rules:
*Grab your current read
*Open to a random page
*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
*BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
*Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


"My expectations of reliving our joyous youth fizzles with every application of Bizza's extra-black eyeliner. I don't know how I could have thought that things could go back to stupid movies, karaoke, and Ouija board sessions. We're big girls now, and anything social must involve boys. Girl power be damned."-Into the Wild Nerd Yonder by Julie Halpern, page 71 Release: Oct. 2009 (Quote is from the ARC copy and should be checked against final copy)

  2. This teaser makes me think of a few of my favorite movies from my teenage years. I've watched a few lately, and it is true, you can't go back. It is never as good as you remember.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book!

Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
