Teaser Tuesday - August 11

teasertuesdays31

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!

"Next time, you get him in headlock. Make him see stars for a little bit. He won't be likely to be doing that to other people then."
"All right, Dad."
With Dad driving me home, in his Members Only jacket and with the smell of Old Spice, I almost feel normal again . . . almost.

- From Wait Until Twilight by Sang Pak.

I can remember my dad giving my brother almost exactly the same advice - bullies are everywhere - and they speak the language of violence. Great teaser!

Such typical parental advice growing up but you know it is so true. I haven't heard of this book yet but with so many comments about it being good I'll have to check it out.
