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!
There’s something about a sleeping person that shows you who they really are. Like the body is so in need of rest that it peels away all the layers we build around ourselves to work on strengthening who we are instead of who we pretend to be. The way Gracie curls herself as small as she can, hides her face in her arms, and clutches the hem of my T-shirt as she sleeps, shows me more about what she’s hiding from than anything she could ever say.

“I will not let them take you alive.”
Of all the things he could have said, that is the one thing that comforts me the most. “Nor I you,” I say around a strange lump that has formed in my throat.
