Teaser Tuesday

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


"It was exactly as she'd suspected ever since the night Uncle Vinnie (who wasn't really her uncle) had pulled her out of Uncle Eddie's kitchen and informed her that boarding school would be a lot like prison (which, ironically, was exactly where Vinnie had been before showing up on Uncle Eddie's front stoop that very night.
"Kat had listened to him with a clarity that suited Uncle Eddie's great-niece. She didn't let it scare her. She just analyzed all the angles and came to the conclusion that Uncle Vinnie was exactly right, and she essentially had two options: Colgan now or jail later (93)."

OK. So I cheated and added a few more sentences....this one is a bit more suspenseful and less chick-lit-ish than I thought.
