Teaser Tuesday: Gap Life by John Coy

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Teaser:
The manager, whose name badge read KEITH, marched up to the counter. He was about thirty and looked irritated, like I'd interrupted something important.
This week I am reading Gap Life by John Coy. I got this one for review from Macmillan. Here is the description from Amazon:
Cray got into the same college his father attended and is expected to go. And to go pre-med. And to get started right away. His parents are paying the tuition. It should be an easy decision.

But it's not.

All Cray knows is that what's expected of him doesn't feel right. The pressure to make a decision―from his family, his friends―is huge. Until he meets Rayne, a girl who is taking a gap year, and who helps him find his first real job, at a home of four adults with developmental disabilities. What he learns about himself and others will turn out to be more than any university could teach him―and twice as difficult.

  1. Now this sounds intriguing. Not crazy about the cover but sometimes that's why I look closer at a story.
