Teaser Tuesday #11

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.
The rules:

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!

This week's teaser is from a YA Hamlet retelling Simon by Michael Mullin:


His father is dead. His mother has remarried. His uncle is . . . his new stepfather? When the ghost of Simon Elsinore's father returns and claims he was murdered by his own brother, the nineteen-year-old film student must determine what is true and exact the revenge his father demands. 

 My Teaser: 

'He [Simon] is compelled, not by others, but by some force within, to sit in the front and watch the two ceremonies funeral and wedding occur simultaneously. Not intertwined, but one atop the other, grotesquely and unnaturally occupying the same space, connected in sight alone, like a rapist and his victim.'

What do you think of this teaser? Can I read yours? Leave a link to your TT post in a comment below!
