Teaser Tuesday: Symptoms of Being Human

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB over at A Daily Rhythm.

To participate all you have to do is:

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 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!

Symptoms of Being Human
            She sits back against the wall and says, "All right. Teach me stuff about things." ARC pg. 78
So, first, I want you to know that everybody experiences some level of anxiety. It's a normal human response to stress. It's like your body's smoke alarm. If there's a fire, you want to know so you can put it out or call 911, right?" 

I shrug. "I guess. But it feels like my alarm is going off al the time." 

Doctor Ann nods. "Some people's systems are more sensitive than others'. For you, maybe all it takes is burning a piece of toast, and your alarm thinks the house is on fire.” ARC pg. 109

This book was fantastic. And the anxiety analogy was SPOT ON. This book. THIS BOOK. *sighs* just so good. 


  1. Oh wow. This sounds interesting. Not many books out there that deal with anxiety.
