Teaser Tuesday (10)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly Tuesday meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading where participants feature a teaser sentence/paragraph from a novel they're reading.

"I told her I basically ran away from the hospital I was supposed to be working at in Kenya to witness what was happening here. I had to see the war. And this she understood."
- pg. 29, Cambodia Calling by Richard Heinzl 

While I really enjoyed this amazing memoir about humanitarian action within Doctors Without Borders, it eventually got really depressing and far too medical-jargon-y for my taste. Tell me which YA novel I should read next! Choose one of the ones I have out from the library or your own recommendation! 


  1. I am a supporter of Doctors Without Borders and tis teaser has convinced me to add this to my TBR list. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/03/teaser-tuesdays-the-beauty-of-humanity-movement.html

  2. Wonderful teaser. It looks worth checking out. If this goes on, how do I reduce my tbr pile?

    Here is my Teaser Tuesday: No Turning Back by Kaylea Cross post!

  3. Sounds like a good one (except for the medical jargony part - as a layperson, I'm cooler about it when a writer skims over those types of technical details!) Thanks for sharing!

  4. Not my type of reading...but, I hope that you are enjoying it. Check out my Teaser for Tuesday.
