Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading

The Rules:
•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) or so “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

This week's teaser comes from First Day On Earth, which is surprisingly more older YA than I expected. I'm really enjoying the Mal's anger towards his 'peers' and the way he expresses it. Here's a totally non-spoilery teaser that tells you nothing about the book, but as a fellow bookworm, I can relate.
I do like they do. I go back to reading.
Always solace in a book.
Always silence in there. ~ pg. 25
*This is the ARC version and lines, pages, cover art may differ from final copy

A startling, wonderful novel about the true meaning of being an alien in an equally alien world.

"We are specks. Pieces of dust in this universe. Big nothings.

"I know what I am."

Mal lives on the fringes of high school. Angry. Misunderstood. Yet loving the world -- or, at least, an idea of the world.

Then he meets Hooper. Who says he's from another planet. And may be going home very soon.
