Teaser Tuesday: Week 93


ShouldBeReadingTeaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of 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!

13112869This week’s teaser comes from “Not a Drop to Drink” by Mindy McGinnis:

Lynn was nine the first time she killed to defend the pond, the sweet smell of water luring the man to be picked off like barn swallows that dared to swoop to take a drink. Mother had killed people who came too close to their pond before, but over the next seven years as they fell by Lynn’s gun as well, their existence easily wiped out first by a bullet, then by the coyotes before the sun could rise. Death and gunpowder were scents from her childhood, but today the fall breeze brought something less familiar to her rooftop perch, and her nose wrinkled.
