Teaser Tuesday (32): The Farm

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

This week's teaser comes from The Farm by Emily McKay. The blurb on the cover compares this book to Resident Evil and The Hunger Games, and I have to say, it's not exactly like either but it does have elements of both. This is definitely a book you're going to want to pick up!
So,’ Sebastian continued in the same mocking tone, ‘you were able to lure one sister here with a Slinky and the promise of gum, but you couldn't get the other sister to come with you at all? And the one you thought liked you, even. How embarrassing. Gum's on the table, by the way. 
{The Farm, page 109}
I pushed myself up. ‘He's one of them, isn't he? Sebastian's a vampire.’ 
For a long moment, only the gentile hum of the Coke machine filled the room, but eventually Carter spoke, his voice as soft as someone trying to coax a spooked kitten out of hiding. ‘He is. But he's different.’ 
‘Different how? Like Edward Cullen different? Like Stefan Salvatore different? 
{The Farm, page 147}
Synopsis of The Farm:

Life was different in the Before: before vampires began devouring humans in a swarm across America; before the surviving young people were rounded up and quarantined. These days, we know what those quarantines are—holding pens where human blood is turned into more food for the undead monsters, known as Ticks. Surrounded by electrical fences, most kids try to survive the Farms by turning on each other…

And when trust is a thing of the past, escape is nearly impossible.
Lily and her twin sister Mel have a plan. Though Mel can barely communicate, her autism helps her notice things no one else notices—like the portion of electrical fence that gets turned off every night. Getting across won’t be easy, but as Lily gathers what they need to escape, a familiar face appears out of nowhere, offering to help…

Carter was a schoolmate of Lily’s in the Before. Managing to evade capture until now, he has valuable knowledge of the outside world. But like everyone on the Farm, Carter has his own agenda, and he knows that behind the Ticks is an even more dangerous threat to the human race...
