Teaser Tuesdays (41): Tracing Stars

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 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Indie Lee Chickory knows she's not as cool as her older sister Bebe. Bebe has more friends, for one. And no one tells Bebe she's a fish freak, for two. So when Indie accidentally brings her pet lobster to school, makes a scene, loses him in the ocean and embarrasses Bebe worse than usual, she makes a wish on a star to become a better Chickory. She tries to do this by joining the stage crew of the community's theater production, The Sound of Music. (Bebe has a starring role.) But Bebe is worried that Indie will embarrass her again, so she gives her a makeover and tells her who she should be friends with. That means Owen is out. But he's fun and smart, so Indie keeps her friendship with him a secret. At night, Indie and Owen rebuild a tree house into a ship in the sky to catch Indie's pet lobster. But during the day, Indie has to hide her friendship with Owen.
When things come to a head, Indie realizes that being true to yourself is more important than being cool. But what's even more surprising is that Bebe realizes it, too.

MY TEASER

It's when I look down that I see the problem. Monty's crusher claw is poking out between the buttons on my shirt, and the way he's wiggling, it looks like I have something trying to crawl out of my stomach. "Monty," I whisper, "what are you doing?" Then I turn to June and Lynn. "Don't worry! It's not an alien." ARC, pg 14

This is the beginning of a really hilarious event when the main character must smuggle her pet lobster out of school and back to the water! Be sure to come back 7/13 when the Tracing Stars Blog Tour stops here with my review, an interview with the author and a giveaway!!!


Leave links to your teasers in the comments :)
