Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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!

Today’s Teaser Tuesday: Where Futures End

Where Futures EndTitle: Where Futures End
Author: Parker Peevyhouse
Publisher: Kathy Dawson Books
Publication Date: February 9, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

Five teens. Five futures. Two worlds. One ending.

One year from now, Dylan develops a sixth sense that allows him to glimpse another world.

Ten years from now, Brixney must get more hits on her social media feed or risk being stuck in a debtors’ colony.

Thirty years from now, Epony scrubs her entire online profile from the web and goes “High Concept.”

Sixty years from now, Reef struggles to survive in a city turned virtual gameboard.

And more than one hundred years from now, Quinn uncovers the alarming secret that links them all. 

Five people, divided by time, will determine the fate of us all. These are stories of a world bent on destroying itself, and of the alternate world that might be its savior—unless it’s too late.

This book is a really interesting read, since it consists of a bunch of short stories that are all linked. I am enjoying it so far!

Book Quotes: Where Futures End

    It was fascinating stuff, and if it was developed properly it would have applications in weather control and in the search for ether, which was only extremely rarefied particles.

    Oooh this novel sounds so good! I’m already very intrigued. And it’s got parallel universes I believe?! I’m reading a book that explore parallel universes at the moment, so I’m in that kind of mood right now.
