SHHHH!
Don't spread the word!
Three-day weekend. House party.
White Rock House on Henry Island.
You do NOT want to miss it.
It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.
But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.
Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

TEASER 1:
"It wasn't a question and T.J. didn't respond. The unspoken "why" lingered in the air between them, but Meg was afraid to ask. Afraid of the answer."
Page 124

Teaser 2:
She should have put the journal down.
Instead, she turned the page.
Page 142

Ten is so creepy and wonderful at the same time. It has that feeling of a teen horror movie, and I could really see it play out in my head.
I have not done a Teaser Tuesday in months, but I think that I will be starting them back up so I can share teasers from my current reads!
If you want to share a teaser with me, just leave me a link in the comments!

Thank you for stopping by Unabridged Bookshelf!

Great teasers! I really need to read this one, considering that one of my favorite movies in high school was I Know What You Did Last Summer. LOL.

Put that journal down! *sigh*... I love that this book is based on And Then There Were None, which I read so long ago that I don't remember much about it except for that it was deliciously creepy. :) Great teasers!

Why do heroines always go down into the basement, open the door into the dark room, or (in this case) turn the page ... when they know they shouldn't?? I guess if they didn't, thrillers wouldn't be thrilling!
My teaser is from THREE MOONS OVER SEDONA.
