If You Could See Me Now

Posted in Memes, Teaser Tuesdays by Lex on January 5, 2010

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

If You Could See Me Now by Cecilia Ahern

“Most meteors from a common meteor shower are parallel to one another . They appear to emerge  from the same point in the sky called the radiant and they travel in all directions prom this point.”

“Oh , I see,” Elizabeth said.

“No, you don’t see.” Ivan turned on his side to face her. “Stars are like people Elizabeth. Just because

they appear to emerge from the same point doesn’t mean they do. This is an illusion of perspective created by distance.”

And as if Elizabeth hadn’t quite understood the meaning, he added, “Not all families manage to hold it together, Elizabeth, everyone moves in different direction. That we all emerge from the same point is a misconception; to travel in different directions is the very nature of every being and every existing thing.”

    Fun! I have this book in my TBR stack and really enjoyed Ahern’s Where Rainbows End — I’m looking forward to reading it!
