Teaser Tuesday-

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading-head there for more details.

 Otherwise just... 
  1. Grab your current read.
  2. Pick a random  passage (not a spoiler) and post it.
  3. Share the author and title so it can be added to reading lists.

 
Here's my teaser(s):

That afternoon involved four sandwishes, soda, chips, buttered toast, chocolate milk.  I ate my way through the refrigerator.  Mom was still away at her new job, at the woodworking studio near Micheltorena, off Sunset into the hills, and my brother and George poured sugar and jam  over toast and talked about their favorite TV series with the robots while I bit and chewed and reported to George.  (36)  The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender.
I am really enjoying this book and like Bender's writing style.  I'm interested in her other books-are they good also??
