Hippie Chick/Teaser Tuesday

"It did not stand to reason that a shark would find you in the first quarter hour you were in the water.  Statistically it would have been a fluke, a crazy ironic coincidence, like lightning burning a Z in Zorro's shoulder blade, or a boat impaling itself on a rusty engine part."  (30)
                                                   ~hippie chick by Joseph Monninger

Teaser Tuesday is a bookish weekly meme hosted by MizB. at Should Be Reading.  Anyone can play along.  Just grab your current read and do the following: 

  1. Open to a random page
  2. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  3. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (don't share too much;  You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  4. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Happy Tuesday!

Lovely prose and I like the wit, did a shark come upon this person? My TT:

I've never heard of the book, but I really liked the teaser. I'm curious to see what situation this quote is referring to. I might have to check it out. Thanks for sharing!

If you're interested, my Teaser Tuesday is here.

You'd have to be unlucky no matter how long you had been in the water!

My teaser this week is quite action packed. It's from Frostbitten by Kelly Armstrong.

That is pretty unlikely. :P

Oh, very curious excerpt! Love the book's title, too (from one "Hippie chick") lol.

Here's my teaser:

I always liked to see Zorro burn his Z into something in the movie since I felt it meant he'd be moving onto something better next. So, this makes me think of what happens next here. An engrossing teaser!
