Teaser Tuesday: Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

Teaser Tuesday: A Lion Among Men by Gregory Maguire


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read

  2. Open to a random page

  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

  4. 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!)

  5. 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 this week comes from pages 153 and 154 of Gregory Maguire's A Lion Among Men:

A good deal of what happened next - the Matter of Dorothy - was a story he didn't choose to dwell upon. How declasse, to arrive with a crippled human decked out with tin prophylactics and with a Scarecrow, sweet enough but clueless as to his own origins - though who wasn't? Burr liked Dorothy, though.
