Teaser Tuesday: Demon: A Memoir by Tosca Lee

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
4. 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!).
5. Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:
Demon: A Memoir
          'Why would the world change?'
'Just as one renegade gene creates a new thing, the world had begun to mutate.' Her casual shrug said it was nothing important. 'It was the natural order, a trajectory set in motion by a single aberration that signaled perversity to come.'
I thought back to every beautiful place I had ever been -- to the red rocks of Utah, the shores of Saint Lucia, the peaks of the Guilin Mountains along the Li River. I thought of Aubrey's travel books, of Ansel Adams's black-and-whites.
'Yes, I call your beautiful world mutant and perverse. So would you if you had seen the original. If you had, you would know how far we've all veered, how like a cancer things have grown. In fact, I almost felt sympathy for El when I saw how saddened he was again. But I, too, had begun to change.' - pg. 128, Demon: A Memoir by Tosca Lee
