A weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading in which you share two teaser sentences from your current read in the hopes that it might entice others to read it.
Tape by Steven Camden
In 1993, Ryan records a diary on an old tape. He talks about his mother’s death, about his dreams, about his love for a new girl at school who doesn’t even know he exists.
In 2013, Ameliah moves in with her grandmother after her parents die. There, she finds a tape in the spare room. A tape with a boy’s voice on it – a voice she can’t quite hear, but which seems to be speaking to her.
Ryan and Ameliah are connected by more than just a tape.
This is their story.
Technically I haven’t started reading this yet (except for the first two pages to find a good teaser) but it’s next on my reading list!
The voice from outside the door came with a bang that shook the hinges and popped the air out of Ryan’s face.
– I said yo! You better hurry up, weed, or I’ll fold you in half.
