Teaser Tuesday

Hi everyone! And welcome to Teaser Tuesday! This is a meme hosted by A Daily Rhythm (formally Should Be Reading). 

In this meme you pick up your current read and post two teaser sentences from it- but no spoilers! 

This week's teasers are from Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender. 

Alexis thought she led a typically dysfunctional high school existence. Dysfunctional like her parents' marriage; her doll-crazy twelve-year-old sister, Kasey; and even her own anti-social, anti-cheerleader attitude. When a family fight results in some tearful sisterly bonding, Alexis realizes that her life is creeping from dysfunction into danger. Kasey is acting stranger than ever: her blue eyes go green sometimes; she uses old-fashioned language; and she even loses track of chunks of time, claiming to know nothing about her strange behavior. Their old house is changing, too. Doors open and close by themselves; water boils on the unlit stove; and an unplugged air conditioner turns the house cold enough to see their breath in.

Alexis wants to think that it's all in her head, but soon, what she liked to think of as silly parlor tricks are becoming life-threatening--to her, her family, and to her budding relationship with the class president. Alexis knows she's the only person who can stop Kasey -- but what if that green-eyed girl isn't even Kasey anymore?

Using my new Kindle's ability to flip through the book, I decided on a random page in Chapter 7. (Unfortunately my Kindle is giving me locations instead of page numbers.) 

The basement door is right down the hall from the kitchen. I stood outside it for a really long minute, staring at the doorknob. I really- and I mean really- had no desire to open it and go down those stairs. 

I thought I heard something on the other side of the wall.
"Kasey, are you down here?"
Still no answer, but this time I heard a definite sound. 

I just started this book but I was really intrigued by the premise- creepy possessed little sisters? I'm all in for that. 

What do you think of this week's Teaser Tuesday? Do you participate in this meme? Have you read Bad Girls Don't Die? Leave me a comment and let me know!
