Teaser Tuesdays (March 10)
Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event.
My modified rules are as follows:
Grab your current read. Pick two or three “teaser” sentences more or less at random from the book, anywhere on the page. 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!) (Read the official Teaser Tuesday rules.)
“No matter how long the children have been gone, no matter how far they have wandered or how many summoning cries have been uttered, they never raise their voices, never feel the need to project their calls in a desperate or territorial manner the way some birds do. These birds know without doubt that, one day, maybe even this day, the lost the strayed, the self-exiled, the banished . . . all will return” (p. 168).
This is from Sing Them Home by Stephanie Kallos.
