Christmas Card #3 #Holidailies

Teaser Tuesday: The Other Side of the Island by Allegra Goodman #Holidailies


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!

As usual, I'm cheating and including more thant two sentences. Many more. I have no excuse, except that it's hard to find only two:

Tears started again in Honor's eyes. "Why can't you just follow the rules?" she demanded.

Her father whispered, "The question is - whose rules?"

"What do you mean, whose rules? Her rules."

"Is she your parents?" Will asked Honor. "Does she tuck you in at night? You have a mother. You have a father. We're the ones who raise you; we're the ones who love you. Don't forget."
