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!

Here are the books we're teasing this week:

Add to Goodreads
Title: Erased

Series: Altered, book #2
Publisher: Little, Brown BFYR
Publication Date: January 7, 2014

They thought they had escaped. They were wrong.

After fleeing the Branch with Sam, Cas, and Nick, Anna is trying to make sense of the memories resurfacing from her old life. At the same time, she's learning how to survive in hiding, following Sam's rules: Don't draw attention to yourself. Always carry a weapon. Know your surroundings. Watch your back.

Then a figure from Anna's childhood reappears. Is it a Branch setup, or could it be the reunion Anna has hoped for? Uncertain of where her loyalties lie, Anna must fight to learn the truth -- before she is betrayed again. Ultimately, the answers hinge on one question: What was the real reason her memories were erased?

Jennifer Rush delivers a thrilling sequel to Altered in a novel packed with mysteries, lies, and surprises that are sure to keep readers guessing until the last age is turned.

     "I closed my eyes. I was so tired. I was tired of arguing. Tired of being treated like I was somehow more fragile than the boys. I might have been a girl, but that didn't mean I needed to be coddled. I contemplated confessing that we'd encountered agents, that we'd seen Riley, that we'd had to fight for our lives and won. But he was already annoyed, and telling him all that would only make it worse."
-- p. 90

Agreed!  I hated how they treated Anna like she might break in Altered, especially after all that they've learned about each other.  But it seems like Anna's tougher and more willing to stand up for herself this time around.  However, there are also times when it's best not to poke an angry dog with a stick, so to speak.  :P
