Teaser Tuesday


Teaser Tuesday is being hosted by The Purple Booker. Here are the rules and anyone can participate!

1: Grab your current read
2: Open to a random page
3: 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! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.

After you have posted on your blog, go to the Purple Booker and comment on her post with your page (not the whole blog) link. 

My teaser:

My mind whirls like an out of control blender. When does Jo Ellen come home? When can I get back into her room without being noticed and get that key out of the lock? How can I return it to Mom’s suitcase? And the biggest whirl of all: What do I do about the fact that my sister’s letter - my sister’s secret - is now in Margie’s hands? 

Does this sound good to you? Comment below and let me know what you think.

Franny Chapman just wants some peace. But that's hard to get when her best friend is feuding with her, her sister has disappeared, and her uncle is fighting an old war in his head. Her saintly younger brother is no help, and the cute boy across the street only complicates things. Worst of all, everyone is walking around just waiting for a bomb to fall.

It's 1962, and it seems that the whole country is living in fear. When President Kennedy goes on television to say that Russia is sending nuclear missiles to Cuba, it only gets worse. Franny doesn't know how to deal with what's going on in the world -- no more than she knows how to deal with what's going on with her family and friends. But somehow she's got to make it through.

Featuring a captivating story interspersed with footage from 1962, award-winning author Deborah Wiles has created a documentary novel that will put you right alongside Franny as she navigates a dangerous time in both her history and our history.
