Teaser Tuesdays (Dec. 2)

Okay, so for those of you who are new to this meme, here's how it works:

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!

If you read last week's teaser and want to know more about The Perfect Score Project, click here to read my review. It was a lot of fun revisiting an old favorite!

My current read is The Gollywhopper Games: The New Champion by Jody Feldman.

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

The Golly Toy and Game Company is hosting the regional rounds for the next Gollywhopper Games, and this time it's brother against brother in the physical challenges and mental puzzles. The companion to the popular The Gollywhopper Games will appeal to fans of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's LibraryCharlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Chasing Vermeer.
Chock-full of puzzles, riddles, and challenges for the reader to solve along with the main characters, this fast-paced companion to The Gollywhopper Games is bigger, bolder, and braver! The Golly Toy and Game Company's Gollywhopper Games was such a big success the last time, the company's executives have decided to host the competition again. Cameron and Spencer Schein have scored two highly sought-after slots in the regional round—will one of the Schein brothers make it all the way to the finals? Favorite characters from the first book make guest appearances, and a new cast of competitors, both boys and girls, get set to compete against (and with) Cameron and Spencer. There are twists and turns and complications—as well as lots of great things to eat—in this page-turner of a race to the finish line!


This week I couldn't pick a favorite quote, so I'm just using the opener. Here it is:
Cameron may have been the only one in his family with an actual ticket for their area's Gollywhopper Regional, but his brothers still shove him to the middle of the backseat like some old forgotten gym bag.
Let me know what you think of the book, and check back on Saturday for my review! While you're here, head on over here to help me with my list of Percy Jackson cliches. Today is the last day to submit cliches! I'll post the final list by the end of the week. I'll also be posting an extra review tomorrow (The Family Romanov: Murder, Rebellion & the Fall of Imperial Russia), so come back then to check it out!

    1. Definitely not just for kids! I, my middle school-aged brother, and my mother all fought over who got to read this one first.

    1. You should read it, it's very good! But start with the first book. It adds extra flavor to this one. :)
