Today's teaser comes from one of my many Dollar Tree finds: Lisa Tucker's The Promised World. I'm nearly 150 pages into it and it's been good so far. Verdict's still out on overall opinion. Regardless, here's a teaser:
"She paused. 'I suppose I sound too excited. I'm a great believer in stories. I used to tell Billy I was afraid we loved stories more than real life, but he said, 'What is life but a story we don't know the meaning of yet?'"" (10).
This excerpt is pretty spot on with my approach to stories and books; they are like real life (kind of...sort of). I mean, who doesn't want to be a student at Hogwart's or roam the halls of Tara or befriend Boo Radley? Happy Tuesday!
