Teaser Tuesday

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!                                                                                   Is it wrong to want to share the same book twice for TT?   Here is my teaser:       

          "The stairs were notoriously loud, so I pleated up my white cotton nightgown and slid down the banister as I'd done my whole life.  It was fast and quiet transportation, but I'd misjudged in the dark and braked late and hit the square newel post hard enough to earn myself a nice blue bruise on my behind, a two-weeker at least."  p. 81 The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly
