Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB over at the blog Should Be Reading. Anyone can do it, too! Click the banner/image, and it'll take you to this week's Teaser Tuesday post on Should Be Reading.
Here's what I (or you) have to do:

1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share two(2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
4. Be careful not to include spoilers! (you don't want to give too much away in case someone wants to read the book, now)
5. Share the title and author of the book so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR pile if they like your teaser.

So, here's mine!

Author: Amanda Marrone

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing

Release Date: October 5, 2010

Summary (Goodreads):

The Van Helsing family has been hunting vampires for over one hundred years, but sixteen-year-old Daphne wishes her parents would take up an occupation that doesn’t involve decapitating vamps for cash. All Daphne wants is to settle down in one place, attend an actual school, and finally find a BFF to go to the mall with. Instead, Daphne has resigned herself to a life of fast food, cheap motels and buying garlic in bulk.
But when the Van Helsings are called to a coastal town in Maine, Daphne’s world is turned upside down. Not only do the Van Helsings find themselves hunting a terrifying new kind of vampire (one without fangs but with a taste for kindergarten cuisine), Daphne meets her first potential BF! The hitch? Her new crush is none other than Tyler Harker, AKA, the son of the rival slayer family.
What's a teen vampire slayer to do?

And the teaser:

"She puts the stake down on the bed, folds her hands in her lap, and looks at me like I'm a small child who doesn't know the first thing about hunting. "Daphne, just because the cheap prototype stake works doesn't mean you should ignore the kick-ass, hand-turned, spindle-style, aged-cedar stake with leather covered handle for a 'sure grip.'""- page 88

Do you all have a book teaser you'd like to share? Put it in the comments!
