Little Bee-Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme,
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! ( You don't want to 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!
Here is my teaser for today:
From Little Bee by Chrise Cleave

I will tell you what happened when the taxi driver came.  The four of us girls, we were waiting outside the Immigration Detention Centre.  We were keeping our backs to it, because that is what you do to a big gray monster who has kept you in his belly for two years, when he suddenly spits you out.  You keep your back to him and you talk in whispers, in case he remembers you and the clever idea comes into his mind to swallow you all up again. p. 50
There are beautifully poignant sentences on each page of this book so it was tough to choose. 
Happy Reading~

I'm still haunted by one or two images from his first novel and I read that more than two years ago!

Gorgeous quote - it's beautiful language, and the content has me curious. Perfect teaser, in other words!
