Teaser Tuesday: Wither (The Chemical Garden Trilogy, Book 1) by Lauren DeStefano

hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading ~

Teaser :
Wither (The Chemical Garden Trilogy)
Linden hooks his arm in mine and we begin to walk, not through the rose garden but toward the orange grove.  All traces of the party are gone, and now I can see it for what it really is: straggly and natural and pretty.  A place where I would want to lie on a blanket and read.

~ page 120 “Wither" by Lauren DeStefano

** Please note that this Teaser was taken from an Advanced Reader Copy and the final book may be slightly different.

About the Book (from the cover):
From the ARC Back Cover: In the not-too-distant future, because of genetic engineering, every human is a ticking time bomb - males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. To keep the population from dying out, girls are kidnapped and sold into polygamous marriages.

When sixteen-year-old Rhine is taken, she enters a world of wealth and privilege that both entices and terrifies her. She has everything she ever wanted - except freedom. With the help of Gabriel, a servant Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to escape before it is too late.
I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers! ~ Wendi

I love that teaser, but the book's premise sounds really grim. Hope it's not as depressing as it sounds!

Here's my teaser.

Here is my teaser from Out of Touch by Brandon Tietz (Page vii):

I used to be the kind of guy that would have no problem reading Playboy or Hustler on an airplane, but that me in "the before," and nearly everything has changed since that time in my life a little over a year ago.

This is not a coming of age story.

If that's what you're wanting then I suggest you put this down and read something else: something with a happy ending. Like Penthouse.

Or: the funny pages.

This is me giving you your official warning.

Because where this goes, you might not be ready for.
