It’s been a while since I participated in a Teaser Tuesday and thought it was time. Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat The rules: grab your current read, open to a random page, and share two (2 or 3) “teaser” sentences from that page while avoiding any spoilers.
This is going to be a teaser for you and me because I haven’t started this book yet. Oh and there’s a giveaway too!
“My name is Leon and my birthday is on the fifth of July, nineteen seventy-one, Your birthday is today. School’s all right but you have to go nearly every day and Miss Sheldon won’t let proper soccer balls in the playground. Nor bikes but I’m too tall for mine anyway; I’ve got two Easter eggs and there’s toys inside on of them. I don’t think you can have chocolate yet. The best program is The Dukes of Hazzard but there are baby programs as well.” pg. 2
And, here’s another from:
“Leon has begun to notice the things that make his mom cry: when Jake makes a lot of noise; when she hasn’t got any money; when she comes back from the phone booth; when Leon asks too many questions; and when she’s staring at Jake.” pg. 13
These teasers are from My Name Is Leon by Kit De Waal. What do you think? I think this could be a great read. So now to the giveaway part. I have an extra ARC to giveaway so if you are interested in this book leave me a comment and let me know and I’ll do a drawing. I’ll announce the winner by Monday.
