Teaser Tuesday - 29th May

Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
After dinner Ma tells me Hansel and Gretel and How the Berlin Wall Fell Down and Rumpelstiltskin. I like when the queen has to guess the little man's name or else he'll take her baby away. "Are stories true?"
Ah, there's the question - what is real and who tells it! A very dark book - Emma Donoghue's Room - triggered by the Fritzl case, tells of a little boy and his mother and the boy's growing up in a strange isolation where the world is only seen through the TV and what his mother feels able to tell him. A hard but absorbing read.
