Teaser Tuesday: I Kill the Mockingbird by Paul Acampora

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"I'm not afraid of anything."

"Everybody's afraid of something. Personally, I struggle with hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia."

"Very funny."

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is a word the Mr. Nowak used to put on our spelling tests. It means a fear of long words.
This week my teaser comes from I Kill the Mockingbird by Paul Acampora. I got this ARC from Macmillan. I may be the only person in the United States who hasn't read this book but somehow I missed it. I am still eager to read this May 20 release. Here is the description:
When Lucy, Elena, and Michael receive their summer reading list, they are excited to seeTo Kill A Mockingbird included. But not everyone in their class shares the same enthusiasm. So they hatch a plot to get the entire town talking about the well-known Harper Lee classic. They plan controversial ways to get people to read the book, including re-shelving copies of the book in bookstores so that people think they are missing and starting a website committed to “destroying the mockingbird.” Their efforts are successful when all of the hullabaloo starts to direct more people to the book. But soon, their exploits start to spin out of control and they unwittingly start a mini revolution in the name of books.
