Teaser Tuesday

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 comes from the book Seasons of Water and Ice by Donald Lystra:

Page 14:  "But after talking to Amber, it was hard to concentrate. I couldn't stop thinking that she was pregnant and didn't have a husband or a boyfriend to help her out, and how, in spite of that, she was still looking forward to being a mother."

 A little about Seasons of Water and Ice:
  Set n 1957 in rural northern Michigan, Season of Water and Ice is the story of a pivotal few months in the life of young teen Danny DeWitt, who lives alone with his father following the sudden departure of his mother. Bookish and relatively friendless, Danny becomes acquainted with Amber, a pregnant teenager abandoned by her boyfriend and rejected by her family. Both outsiders-one because of disposition, the other because of social stigma- Danny and Amber form an unusual, openhearted alliance that helps each other deal with their seperate challenges.

Whats your teaser?

I always like hearing about and cheering for the "outsiders" or those considered not likely to succeed. Sounds like a great book! Thanks for visiting my TT.
