Teaser Tuesday: January 19

Posted in Book Talk tagged , , , , at 3:42 pm by The Word Jar

 Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:

* Grab your current read.
* Let the book fall open to a random page.
* Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.

You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from…that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

Please avoid spoilers!

My teaser this week comes from One Amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, a book I received through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program.

The rules Uma set down were simple: no interruptions, no questions, and no recriminations, especially by family members. Between stories, they would take breaks as needed.

One Amazing Thing focuses on nine people trapped in an Indian visa and passport office after an earthquake. In their struggle to survive, they all share “one amazing thing” from their lives. One Amazing Thing will be released in February.

(Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Check it out for more teasers!)
