Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should Be Reading. Here's how you play:

* 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!

My teaser this week:
Everyone knew why I was brainless. A stubborn lung infection was keeping me out of the Vancouver public school system.
~ taken from page 129, The Jade Peony by Wayson Choy

That is certainly an interesting teaser...I wonder at the word choice with 'brainless.' Intriguing!

If you'd like, you can check out my teaser here.

There's so much going on in just those couple of sentences - the narrator's perception of herself and others, that she's been sick, and that she lives in Vancouver. Good teaser!
