Tuesday Teasers: 3 Good Ones For You


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:
I packed as many of them as I possibly could into the hearse and had the rest stand on the sideboards, hanging on through the open windows. With Rosemary holding limp Little Jim in her lap beside me, I set out to take all the kids home, going to Yampi and then Pica--the kids on the sideboards having the time of their lives, hooting and hollering, treating it like a carnival ride--before heading for Kingman.
From page 171 of Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls. (Historical memoir)

No one ever asked that question. They stared, They whispered. They laughed. But they never asked. My entire world collapsed around me as I answered, "Yes."
From page 96 of Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry.  (YA Fiction)

Gerard's:
"What you are doing to her, forcing her to come to birthday parties and taking her to playdates, it's torture."
"I'm only trying to find her friends," Susan answers.
From page 26 of January First by Michael Schofield. (Non-fiction, autobiography)

Happy Reading!
