Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:
- Grab your current read.
- Let the book fall open to a random page.
- Share with us 2 sentences from that 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!

And rather than a random page, I should find my teaser on Page 56.
Sitting on my desk is my latest pile of library books, so I will choose the book on the top for my teaser.
