Dreamless Teaser

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

*Grab your current read.
*Let the book fall open to a random page.
*Share with us “teaser” sentences from that page.
*You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

Dreamless by Josephine Angelini

She hauled herself out of bed and noticed that her shirt was half torn off, there were odd sticks and dead leaves tangled in her hair, and she'd lost a shoe. Of course, she ran into Lucas on her way to the bathroom. He stared at her for a moment, his eyes ticking up and down her bedraggled frame while the rest of his body remained rigid.

"What? You going to yell at me again?" Helen challenged, to tired to be careful.
"No." His voice broke. "I'm done fighting with you. It obviously isn't helping."
"Then what?"
"I can't do this, " he said, more to himself than Helen. "My father was wrong."

Her bleary brain was still processing his words when he opened the nears window and jumped out of it. (pg. 110-111 of eARC)
