Teaser Tuesday (June 8)

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 two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Technically, I really shouldn’t have started this book until I’d finished all the others I had going. But I couldn’t resist.

The water under the Ben Franklin was so far down that an enormous navy ship could pass underneath. And I looked ahead at the six lanes of traffic dotted with all sorts of blinking signs and lights.

It made me feel like the city was a bigger and better sort of “island”…a magical place full of skyscrapers and other proof of how people thought harder and bigger here. I started feeling relieved that I was coming back. Maybe a cure for cancer had been discovered in Philadelphia just last week.

— p.86, What Happened to Lani Garver by Carol Plum-Ucci.
