Teaser Tuesdays (22)

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: 


"Whatever I say doesn't help with the giref
If only I didn't feel so much relief.
All I can hope is she's somewhere above
My sister, Faith, who I hated and loved."

- Losing Faith by Denise Jaden, p. 61

Losing Faith tells the story of a girl who grieves the death of a sister she's not sure if she ever really knew, and the teaser, which is an excerpt from the poem she recited on her sister's funeral, captures the complex relationship between the two girls. I'm only in the seventh chapter, but I've already gotten a picture of how different Brie and Faith are. The anomalies in Faith's death are just starting to surface, though, and I'm dying to read more!

  4. At first I thought it was a Verse Novel, glad you said it was an passage, sounds good.

    My TT is from a horror.
