Teaser Tuesday: Surviving Antartica

Teaser Tuesday 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 away too much. 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 teaser!


And no, it's not non-fiction. I don't read many books that aren't fiction, specifically urban fantasy or dystopian genres. As the sub-title is "Reality TV 2083," this one falls into both categories. To think, I was mostly kidding when I said reality tv was destroying life as we know it! Five teens are sent to Antarctica to re-live the dangerous South Pole expedition, for the sake of a futuristic society's edu-tainment. I just started this book yesterday so I'm not very far into it. A friend loaned it to me and, since I've had a few of her books for months now, I'd better get these read and back to her before she stops letting me borrow her books.


My teaser:
"We've saved our taxpayers billions of dollars by getting rid of the public schools. We teach history through Survivor, English through Tele-Novelas, and math through Dialing for Dollars."   
- page 23, the Secretary of Entertainment, "Surviving Antarctica: Reality TV 2083" by Andrea White.
