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!

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.
