Teaser Tuesday #17: Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB from Should Be Reading. Here are the rules: 


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB ofShould 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!
Kat, Incorrigible (Kat, Incorrigible, #1)
Goodreads.com summary: Twelve-year-old Kat Stephenson may be the despair of her social-climbing Step-Mama, but she was born to be a magical Guardian and protector of Society--if she can ever find true acceptance in the secret Order that expelled her own mother. She’s ready to turn the hidebound Order of the Guardians inside-out, whether the older members like it or not. And in a society where magic is the greatest scandal of all, Kat is determined to use all her powers to help her three older siblings--saintly Elissa, practicing-witch Angeline, and hopelessly foolish Charles--find their own true loves, even if she has to turn highwayman, battle wild magic, and confront real ghosts along the way!



My teaser: 
     '"Of course I had to come," Lady Fotherington purred. "How could I stay away from such a gathering? Especially with so many charming gentlemen among your company?"
     Well that proved it wasn't me, at least. I would never say anything so disgusting, no matter how many spells had been placed upon me. 
     Unfortunately, that left me with only one conclusion: Lady Fotherington really was standing right below me.' - page 176

  2. Interesting teaser indeed! Had seen this around lately, but thought it was more for the middle school reader. It seems a bit more than that to me!

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)
