Teaser Tuesdays (July 17)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

“ ‘Uncle William went to sleep,’ he said distinctly.

He was the first child she had known well, and Amanda was taken aback. She turned right round to him, which was the reaction he had in mind.

‘Who told you that?’

‘Lugg. He said “He’s gone to sleep, pore old perisher”.’ Rupert sighed. ‘And so they buried him,’ he said with great matter-of-factness.”

    1. Yeah as a mom she doesn’t expect her young son to know much about death or any other distressing occurrences. But in my experience kids know a lot more than we think they do.

    1. It’s not so much sad as surprising. The kid stays calm even after seeing something potentially disturbing while out playing with his dog. That’s what worries his mother, Amanda.
