Teaser Tuesdays:  The Unbearable Lightness of Scones

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading. Here are the rules: grab whatever you're reading, open to a random page, select no more than two sentence (NO SPOILERS), share the title and author, and GO!
Today's teaser:
"Grown-ups spoke as if the world were simple; as if people behaved nicely to one another.  But Bertie knew that they did not.  When you were a boy, as he was, and saw the world the way in which boys saw it, it all looked very different.  Olive and Tofu would fight because that's what people like that did:  they fought.  And it would end up with Tofu spitting on Olive, and Olive screaming and perhaps even trying to stab Tofu with the syringe from her junior nurse's kit." --page 88-89
          -----The Unbearable Lightness of Scones by Alexander McCall Smith

Happy reading!

    1. It's my way of reminiscing about Edinburgh :) They're fun, easy books to get into and read. I'd definitely recommend them!
