Teaser Tuesdays - Gilda Joyce and the Dead Drop

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!

I actually started The Girl Who Stopped Swimming yesterday, but couldn't get into it. Fortunately, USPS brought me the latest Gilda Joyce just when I was deciding to switch to a different book. So my Teaser today is from Gilda Joyce and the Dead Drop by Jennifer Allison (page 40):

"I actually think she summed up the Cold War pretty well," said April. "Just throw in the threat of nuclear war and it was basically the high school lunchroom."

Sounds funny... I really respect children and middle book authors who use quick wit and get the "voice" of that age.
