Tuesday Teaser: "I'm Outnumbered!" and "Promise Me"


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just do the following:          
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on  that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away!   You don’t  want  to  ruin the  book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser. 
Karen's:
After all, we'd hit upon a successful system and, by golly, it had worked with Boy #1. It was hard to accept that things didn't work the same with Boy #2.

From p. 21 of I'm Outnumbered!--One Mom's Lessons in the Lively Art of Raising Boys by Laura Lee Groves.

Gerard's:
He said, 'Go home, put things in order and cherish every minute with your loved ones.' He began to cry again. "I told him I didn't have a home."
From p. 69 of Promise Me by Richard Paul Evans

  2. Great teasers! I had two girls so I wouldn't know about raising boys.
    "Promise Me" sounds like an emotional book.

  4. cj: "Promise Me" is good. The review will be up soon. "I'm Outnumbered" is a self-help book on raising boys. The author has four boys and gives some good suggestions.

    SusanB: Yes, "Promise Me" is an emotional one.

    Julie: Thanks!
