Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
This week's teaser is from... Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
"She stands on the cliffs, near the old crumbling stone house.Okay... so I know this is WAY more than 2 sentences.. but I couldn't help it. This is literally THE FIRST PAGE. Does it give you goosebumps?? It gave me goosebumps :) I'm loving it!!!
There's nothing left in the house but an upturned table, a ladle, and a clay bowl. She stands for more than an hour, goose-bumped and shivering. At these times, she won't confide in me. She runs her hands over her body, as if checking that it's still there, her heart pulsing and beating. The limbs are smooth and strong, thin and sinewy, her hair long and black and messy and gleaming despite her age. You wouldn't know it to look at her, that she's live long enough to look for what's across the water. Eighty years later, and she is still fifteen.
