Teaser Tuesdays: The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady (II)

This week my teaser lines come from The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady, by Elizabeth Stuckey-French. I've already teased from this book once before. But I put it aside to read other things, and now I'm finally finishing it up. This excerpt comes from page 21, and refers to Suzi, the teenager who's just made the acquaintance of the book's main character, "Nance" (the radioactive lady):
...she liked to live dangerously, and, okay, it was entertaining, she had to admit, watching her mother getting angrier and angrier while trying not to,...but she had to make sure her mother didn't get too angry, or it would quickly stop being funny and start being scary. Whew. It was hard work being thirteen.
Yes, I know it must be, although my teenage years are a very distant memory. I suppose I must have been thirteen once upon a time, but right now that's pretty hard to believe.


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by mizB at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.

And please feel free to leave me a link to your Teaser Tuesday post in your comment here.

    I keep hearing about this book. Are you enjoying it? Not a good sign that you put it down...
