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!
This week my teaser is from “Monster: Oil on Canvas” by Dmitry Zlotsky.
Here it is: “The charges of museum robbery would be dropped in exchange for twin dunces’ caps. Like in the school production of the Hunchback of Notre Dame, our treacherous Peter will supervise the construction of gallows on the main square, cleared for the occasion from sand or slush, depending on the season when the mock trial is over.” Pg 167
