Teaser Tuesday: Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell

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 I'm rereading one of my all-time favourite books, Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell.  I always loved this story of a resourseful young Indian girl left alone on an island, and how she survived year after year. On her own she built a shelter, fashioned weapons like spears and bow and arrows, hunted and foraged for food, and fought off the island's population of wild dogs. I enjoy this book every time I read it.

Here are my teasers from page 46:

I waited on the mesa until the sun was overhead. Then I hurried back to the village, hoping that Ramo might have come back while I was gone. The hut was empty.
