Teaser Tuesday (8)

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!

My teaser this week:

I didn't punch Cindy Newsome in the face on purpose. I sat in the chair outside the principal’s door, swinging my legs back and forth and wondering how I could possibly convince Principal Kim the same thing.  I knew it'd be hard, because a lot of people did want to punch Cindy Newsome in the face.

Summary from Goodreads:
Hot Ticket (Hot Ticket Trilogy)Juliet Robinson is the only sixth grader in John Jay Jr. High who hasn't received a "hot ticket" from the mysterious ticket dispenser. When one of the dorkiest kids in school - Crammit Gibson - receives a ticket before she does, Juliet decides that the ticketing system has to stop. With the help of her best friend Lucy, a Daria-esque Madeline and her almost-crush Crammit, Juliet is determined to climb a few rungs on the middle school social ladder and catch the ticket dispenser once and for all!

HOT TICKET is the first book in the Hot Ticket Trilogy


  1. Cute teaser!! Now I want to know if the principle believes her and why people want to punch Cindy!

  2. That sounds like a fun read, but I can hardly imagining this story to be a trilogy!
