    Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
    Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

    The Rules:
    •Grab your current read
    •Open to a random page
    •Share two (2) or so “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.

    This week's teaser comes from Perfect Chemistry written by Simone Elkeles.

    Oh my God. Alex...my chemistry partner? For the entire senior year! No way,now how, SO not okay.
