Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly 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 at least two “teaser” sentences somwhere on that page.
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS
  • Share the title & author so others can add the book to their TBR if they like the teasers.

The Summer Before Boys by Nora Raleigh Baskin

“Iraq, my goodness,” Pam said. “You must be so proud.”
I wasn’t proud. I wasn’t proud at all. I mean I was. I was proud. I was proud that my mom was in the army, that she was fighting for our country. That she was so brave. And had given up so much to help other people, to protect our country. But no one really understood. They thought they did. Proud sounds like a happy thing and I wasn’t happy that my mother was in Iraq.

pg. 24
