Teaser Tuesdays: The League of Unexceptional Children by Kitty Daneshvari (Nov 10)

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 A Daily Rhythm. 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!

My current read is The League of Unexceptional Children by Gitty Daneshvari.


Are you average? Normal? Forgettable? If so, the League of Unexceptional Children is for you! This first book in a hilarious new adventure series is for anyone who's struggled to be noticed in a sea of above-average overachievers.
What is the League of Unexceptional Children? I'm glad you asked. You didn't ask? Well, you would have eventually and I hate to waste time. The League of Unexceptional Children is a covert network that uses the nation's most average, normal, and utterly unexceptional children as spies. Why the average kids? Why not the brainiacs? Or the beauty queens? Or the jocks? It's simple: People remember them. But not the unexceptionals. They are the forgotten ones. Until now!
(240 pages)

Here's this week's teaser, from page 1:
Ordinary. Normal. Average. Unexceptional.
Awful words the whole lot of them. Why, just saying them can turn a mouth sour! 
Let me know what you think of the book, and check back on Friday for my review!

    1. It is fun! It's not the best MG fiction I've ever read, but I still think a lot of kids will love it.

    1. Yes, it's definitely a fun book! I actually think this is one of those titles that the kids who are actually the target audience will enjoy more than I did.
