Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

Please avoid spoilers!

My teaser sentences today are from page 126 of Jayne Pupek's TOMATO GIRL

Talking about the dead baby gave me a sick feeling, but talking about Daddy and Tess was worse. That hurt went all through me like a dull butter knife.

This from 11 year old Ellie, trying to cope with things a child shouldn't have to know about.


  1. Amazing what just two sentences can hint at...

  2. I've never heard of this book, but your teaser sure has left me intrigued!

  3. This one is definitely on my wish list. It's gotten some great reviews out in the blogosphere.

  4. This sounds a bit of a heartbreaker!

    Sorry about the link on my blog not being right!
