Tuesday Teasers: 4 This Week!


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.   
Gerard's:
I asked God if it was my fault Mother died, and He said that it was. I knew that already though. I knew it every time Father was angry with me.
From page 250 of The Land of Decoration by Grace Cleen

It would be my luscious escape, if only for a brief time. There, I'd leave my troubles behind, I thought.
Instead, I only found more.
From page 37 of Wild--From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed.

Karen's:
"Why are all those dogs with you?" she shouted, instead of answering his question.
"Oh, I don't know," Henry said, lamely. He pounded his fist on the steering wheel and looked down at Edgar, scootched below the windows.
From page 427 of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski.

I climb higher in the sweet gum and hope the engineer will turn that train around and come back to get me. Take me away, to the place Sloth calls the free.
From page 15 of Into the Free by Julie Cantrell.
