It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Tuesday Teaser and I figured I’d post one this week!
- 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 is a long one, but I couldn’t get myself to cut any of it out. It’s just too good!
” I don’t want to lose my composure,” Ginger said. “So you had better go to your room now.”
“Let me just get a snack first-“
“Go to your room NOW”
I scurried to the stairs involuntarily. I didn’t mean to obey her but she scared me. Ginger hardly ever gets mad.
Still, I couldn’t resist taking one last jab at her.
“Heini!” I yelped as I started upstairs. It was the worst word I could think of, the word Ginger hates most in the world.
Ginger’s face reddened over her freckles. “Stop it!”
“Heini heini heinie! Wiener! Booger! Shut up!”
She swayed, nauseated by my vulgar language. “Are you quite finished?”
“Mayonaise!” We glared at eachother. I felt tired. It washed over me suddenly, draining me of energy. I’d had enough conflict for one day.
“Now I’m finished,” I said.
Page 204 in Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters by Natalie Standiford. This book is great! I highly recommend!
