Teaser Tuesday 12.15.09

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. 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! (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!


My Teaser:

" My body is sick with fear. It's so strong I feel it coming out of my pores like sweat. Richard puts the key in the ignition slowly, fiddles with the wing mirror, then starts the car, and we're halfway down the drive before I remember the food in the back. But I say nothing and hope he won't hear the plastic bags rustle. The food will be spoiling already in this heat, but we can't go back now. At the end of the track Richard turns left instead of right."

Talking to the Dead by Helen Dunmore p. 230
