Teaser Tuesdays - May 12

Teaser 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!

My teaser:


Everywhere there is change. Perhaps that's why I continue to drive this way: it reminds me, by contrast, how little the house we are gong to has changed. Indeed, the Big House has always been a place whose very goal is never to change. Now it is on the verge of changing forever. (pages 7-8)

by George Howe Colt
