This addition of Teaser Tuesday is brought to you by: If I Stay by Gayle Forman.
I thought that this would be an interesting addition to the Teaser Tuesday, and when I flipped to a random page, I was right.
You wouldn't expect the radio to work afterword. But it does.
The car is eviscerated. The impact of a four-ton pickup truck going sixty miles an hour plowing straight into the passenger side had the force of an atom bomb. It tore off the doors, sent the front side passenger seat thruogh the driver's-side window. It flipped the chassis, bouncing it across the road and ripped the engine apart as if it were no stronger than a spiderweb. It rossed wheels and hubcaps deep into the forest. It ignited bits of the gas tank, so that now tiny flames lap at the wet road.
And there was so much noise. A symphony of grinding, a chorus of popping, an aria of exploding, and finally, the sad clapping of hard metal cutting into soft trees. Then it went quiet, except for this: Beethoven's Cello Sonata no. 3, still playing. The car radio somehow still is attached to a battery and so Beethoven is broadcasting into the once-again tranquil February morning.
I love, love, love, LOVE this book, and this was one of the scenes that had me reading as fast as I could to see what all had happened. A great way to describe this scene: with musical terms. If you didn't know, Mia, the main character, is a musician.
SO READ IT!
Thank you! What have you done for your Teaser Tuesday?
