Teaser Tuesday


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! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! ;)



My teaser today is from No Place Safe: A Family Memoir by Kim Reid

~No amount of money can equal a soul, but to take a child away, to make his family ache for the hole his taking leaves, for two hundred dollars was just plain meanness. In my mind, this could only be someone who saw no value in the life of that child and wanted to make sure the world knew it, the way diners who've received bad service will leave a penny instead of no tip at all, to make sure the waiter gets the point.~ pg. 127
What's YOUR teaser today????

How timely in light of current news about that child from Russia who was returned from his adoptive home in the U.S. Your teaser hints at yet one more child whose life is not valued.

Thanks for stopping by Summit Musings for my teaser for Lunch in Paris.

Nice teaser. Although it's a bit emotional to read. There's definitely truth in it.
