Teaser Tuesdays -- Mar 09, 2010


Teaser Tuesdays

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 with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.

~ Pg. 68, Fireworks over Toccoa by Jeffrey Stepakoff.
