- 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!
(I usually break rule 3.)
This week my teaser is from The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, which I took out of the library because it was on their "Banned Books" stand, which they surrounded with bright yellow CAUTION tape to highlight it--I do love that library. (The irony here was that they surrounded the entire YA section with the same CAUTION tape.)
"Let's do it," I said.
Hassan's face brightened. "Good," he said. He lifted out kite, red with yellow borders, and, just beneath where the central and cross spars met, marked with Saifo's unmistakable signature. He licked his finger and held it up, tested the wind, and ran in its direction--on those rare occasions we flew the kites in the summer, he'd kick up dust to see which way the wind blew it.
What are your teasers?
