Teaser Tuesday: SCRAMBLED EGGS @ MIDNIGHT

As always, Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB @ Should be Reading.
Here's how it works: Grab the current book you're reading- Open up to a random page- share a little "teaser" from somewhere on that page.***Make sure your section is spoiler free!!

First, here's a synopsis of Scrambled Eggs at Midnight from Goodreads:
Calliope (or Cal as she calls herself) wants nothing more than to stay put; to stop traveling cross-country with her mother, sleeping in a tent, and abandoning all belongings whenever they pull up stakes. Meanwhile, Eliot misses the happy times he left behind when his father decided to open a camp for kids looking to lose weight and find Jesus. when Cal and Eliot meet by chance, they feel an immediate connection. together they must face their isolation, the threat of yet another move, and the deepening of eliot's father's obsession. in their case, love just might be everything it's cracked up to be.


And now here's my teaser:

Then one summer he had the idea to run this special theme camp called Get Thin with Christ! and a busload of fat kids came and prayed and learned to eat salad, and then the next summer the same camp, but for adults, and that was that. A business was born. He's written two books already, has been on TV and everything. You've seen his T-shirts, the hats, the rainbow bracelets, the bumper stickers, the billboards, the cookbook - WWJE, What Would Jesus Eat? On page 347 is a recipe for salmon with capers, a yogurt-based dill sauce, arugula salad with balsamic vinaigrette, and a sugar-free mini cheesecake for dessert. I feel pretty sure that Jesus wouldn't eat that...
- pg 19
