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! ;)


My teaser today is from Ambulance Girl by Jane Stern.

~I am beginning to realize that while the class was about taking a test and acting like the Dorothy Hamill girl, here at the firehouse it's about getting your hands on a really sick person and trying to save that person's life. Suddenly all my fears come back and I think I am way too claustrophobic to ride in the ambulance, to see anything icky, to get up at 3 am from my warm bed.~ pg 99

I am loving this memoir by Jane Stern. Although it deals with the serious subject of her training to become an EMT, Jane brings humor to her situations. I have laughed out loud more than a few times while reading this book. I just started it today.....it's a really good read! What's YOUR teaser today?
