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 comes from Breath: A Lifetime in the Rhythm of an Iron Lung; A Memoir by Martha Mason:

~As I grew older, I discovered that the boys in my grade-school classes seemed obsessed with pulling hair and jerking on anything tied in a bow, particularly the ribbons on my braids and the sashes on my dresses. Inadvertently, Mother had made me the primary target for the bow-bashing squad.~ pg. 122

What's YOUR teaser today?

Great teaser! Haven't heard of that book before. My teaser is here.

But boys only do that when they think a girl is cute. So... I guess her mother made her a target twice over.

That made me smile, we forget as parents how we may be setting our children up

Wow, don't like to admit it, but I'm old enough to remember those "bow-bashing squads." But if they attacked your bows, it meant they liked you! Sounds like it might be a sad book, but that's a great teaser!

Here’s mine.
