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


This week's teaser comes from the following book:

Add to Goodreads
Title: Nobody But Us
Author: Kristin Halbrook
Series: n/a
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: January 29, 2013
Source: from publisher via Edelweiss
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Bonnie and Clyde meets IF I STAY in this addictively heart-wrenching story of two desperate teenagers on the run from their pasts.

They’re young. They’re in love. They’re on the run.

Zoe wants to save Will as much as Will wants to save Zoe. When Will turns eighteen, they decide to run away together. But they never expected their escape to be so fraught with danger....

When the whole world is after you, sometimes it seems like you can’t run fast enough.

Nobody But Us, told in alternating perspectives from Will and Zoe, is an unflinching novel, in turns heartbreaking and hopeful, about survival, choices, and love...and how having love doesn’t always mean that you get a happy ending.


My teaser:

"My life is where you are."  How can his voice be so calm when I can't stop yelling?  "If they take you from me, I ain't got a life."
-- 82%, Loc 2566 of galley

I'm hoping for a happy ending, but that last line of the summary has me worried.  *bites nails*

What are you teasing this week?  Share it in the comments or leave a link so I can check it out!
