Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.

The rules are simple: grab your current read, open it to a random page, and post two teaser sentences from somewhere on the page.

Here’s what I’m reading…


Title: Xander and the Lost Island of Monsters
Momotaro #1
Author: Margaret Dilloway
Release Date: April 5, 2016
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion

Xander Miyamoto would rather do almost anything than listen to his sixth grade teacher, Mr. Stedman, drone on about weather disasters happening around the globe. If Xander could do stuff he’s good at instead, like draw comics and create computer programs, and if Lovey would stop harassing him for being half Asian, he might not be counting the minutes until the dismissal bell.

When spring break begins at last, Xander plans to spend it playing computer games with his best friend, Peyton. Xander’s father briefly distracts him with a comic book about some samurai warrior that pops out of a peach pit. Xander tosses it aside, but Peyton finds it more interesting.

Little does either boy know that the comic is a warning. They are about to be thrust into the biggest adventure of their lives-a journey wilder than any Xander has ever imagined, full of weird monsters even worse than Lovey. To win at this deadly serious game they will have to rely on their wits, courage, faith, and especially, each other. Maybe Xander should have listened to Mr Stedman about the weather after all. . . .

My teachers have tried to get Dad to medicate me. [….] And you know what? Knowing that my teachers think I’m broken does not make me want to come to school more.”


I’m really enjoying this book so far.  It’s giving me Percy Jackson vibes and makes me want to finally go back and finish reading the series (I’ve only read the first book).
