Teaser Tuesdays

My Teaser Tuesday entry. From Swamplandia! by Karen Russell, page 130:

"I swam as smoothly as I could for the edge of the Pit. My palms scooped through little nets of algae and something thicker."

This reminds me of swimming in a lake at my Grandmother's cottage. There was always so much seaweed and other plant stuff that it grossed me out. What a way for the author to use imagery.
