Teaser Tuesday (27): Possess

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser comes from Possess by Gretchen McNeil. I haven't started this one yet (I'm holding out on this one until Halloween), but decided to post a teaser because I'm giving a Kindle copy of it away in my Halloween Reads Giveaway
Their celebration was cut short by a deep, grating cackle. It was an ugly sound: a dozen voices laughing at once but without joy, without lightness. 
{Possess, page 23}
And here's another. This one made me laugh.
What's wrong?’ she asked to the back of Sammy's head. 
‘Nightmare.’ 
‘Elephants again?’ Sammy had been terrified of elephants ever sine he'd seen the psychedelic dream sequence in Dumbo.
{Possess, page 85}
Goodreads Synopsis of Possess:

Rule #1: Do not show fear.
Rule #2: Do not show pity.
Rule #3: Do not engage.
Rule #4: Do not let your guard down.
Rule #5: They lie.

Fifteen-year-old Bridget Liu just wants to be left alone: by her mom, by the cute son of a local police sergeant, and by the eerie voices she can suddenly and inexplicably hear. Unfortunately for Bridget, it turns out the voices are demons – and Bridget has the rare ability to banish them back to whatever hell they came from.

Terrified to tell people about her new power, Bridget confides in a local priest who enlists her help in increasingly dangerous cases of demonic possession. But just as she is starting to come to terms with her new power, Bridget receives a startling message from one of the demons. Now Bridget must unlock the secret to the demons' plan before someone close to her winds up dead – or worse, the human vessel of a demon king.
