Teaser Tuesday - Hunger, by Michael Grant

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* 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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


"Hunger" is the second book in a series of Teen Fiction novels written by Michael Grant, centered around the idea that in a single moment everyone over the age of fifteen disappears.  In this scene, Astrid examines photos of a mutated worm.

The Tease:
"Astrid cliked ahead, but then she froze.  She backed up.  She zoomed in tight.
A worm was turned toward the camera, twisted around so that its toothy mouth was aimed at the camera.  Nothing unusual except that the next worm she panned over to was doing the same thing...And the next worm.  She found nineteen separate images of worms.  All were turned toward the camera.  Pointing in the direction of the attack.
Aiming their devil grins at Sam."
 -Hunger, by Michael Grant

What's your Tease?
