Teaser Tuesday (22)

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
* 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I'm teasing with two banned/challenged books this week:

Brave New WorldBrave New World - Aldous Huxley

Reasons for being banned/challenged: language and morality issues. 
There was an uneasy silence. Several of the boys blushed. They had not yet learned to draw the significant but often very fine distinction between smut and pure science.

Twenty Boy Summer - Sarah Ockler

Twenty Boy SummerReason for being banned/challenged: Because the title suggests promiscuity? There's a bit of sex and some alcohol? Idk, really, I don't.

I should have known better than to invoke the universe when it's so clearly in the mood to dole out lessons. Tonight turns out to be a horriblw television night in the Bay area, for Red and Jayne are waiting for us in the kitchen, drinking tea, playing cards, and eager to hear about out wild pirate-girl adventures at sea.
