Teaser Tuesday - I See You Made an Effort by Annabelle Gurwitch

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of 
• 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 and 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 I See You Made an Effort: Compliments, Indignities, and Survival Stories from the edge of 50 by Annabelle Gurwitch. It's being released March 6, 2014 from Blue Rider Press. 

"Doing my best to walk while staring at my feet was difficult enough, but I once made the unforgivable mistake of waving hello, a gesture that was deemed way too enthusiastic. It caused so much distress I could only surmise it was the teenage equivalent of waterboarding."

So far, this is a funny book. It's poking fun at what it's like for women to get older, and in the case of the quote, with a middle school age son. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of it.

What are your teasers this week?


  1. I love the cover and the title, as well as your teaser. Sounds like that character is having a hard time learning how to be cool.
