Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat
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!
“The Simmons family lived above the Funeral Parlor. Billy Simmons wasn’t anything to worry over, but Telford’s mamma was a pinch-face parsimonious shrew who would stand on the doorstep and hand Telford a cookie after school, but never had one to spar for any other child, and Telford, mortified, would chew dryly on it under her waiting eye.”
I chose this because it reminds me that I adore Margaret Lawrence for just that: her ability to explain a situation beautifully! I can just see Telford’s mamma, all pinch faced and looking disapprovingly at the other children.
