Teaser Tuesday

I am joining the fun over at . Reading Adventure (who is joining the fun over at Should be Reading )

  • Teaser Tuesday is hosted by : Should be Reading
  • 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 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!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

I just started the book this morning (don't you raise an eyebrow at me, I did not just start the book so I could play).

The book is The True Story of Hansel and Gretel A novel of war and survival.

And the winner of my teaser search is.....p 102

"He lead them deeper into the trees through snow that was so soft he sometimes turned and picked up the girl, and the boy clung to his back. He could feel the faster beat of her heart through his coat. "

GOOD GOD I couldn't have planned that better if I tried. Now THAT is Hansel and Gretel.
