Tuesday Teasers: "Afterwards" and "A Dog's Purpose"


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 screamed her name. Over and over. And each time I screamed her name, smoke came into my mouth and throat and lungs until I couldn't scream anymore.
From page 19 of Afterwards by Rosamund Lupton.

Karen's:
Of all the things I'd ever done, making Senora laugh seemed the most important.
It was, I reflected, the only thing that gave my life any purpose.
From page 54 of A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron.

  10. I haven't read either. The first makes me think burning building. The second would sound like a love story, save for the title.
