Teaser Tuesday #3--Rage

It's teaser Tuesday again.  Today, I'm highlighting RAGE by Jackie Morse Kessler.

Here is how Teaser Tuesday works:
- Grab your current read.
- Open to a random page.
-In the comment section, share a few “teaser” sentences (maybe a short paragraph) from somewhere on that page BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (That means, make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Remember to show the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Story:  (From the back cover.)
Missy didn't mean to cut so deep.  But after the party where she was humiliated in front of practically everyone in school, who could blame her for wanting some comfort? Sure, most people don't find comfort in the touch of a razorblade, but Missy always was...different.

That's why she was chosen to become one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: War.  Now Missy wields a new kind of blade--a big, brutal sword that can cut down anyone and anything in her path. But it's with this weapon in her hand that Missy learns something that could help her triumph over her own pain: control.

The Teaser:
"Be seeing you," Adam said.

Not if she could help it.  Missy fled down the hall, her ears ringing with the Matts' laughter, her stupid body reminding her just how much she missed being with Adam.  And that slowly turned to panic. The familiar feeling of suffocation leeched its way through her, making each breath torture, and her heart screamed behind the prison of her ribs.

She thought desperately of her lockbox, tucked safely away in her closet.

Not again, she told herself. Not again.

Whether she meant Adam or her razorblade, Missy couldn't say.

Your turn! Grab your nearest novel and give us a teaser.
