"Teaser Tuesdays"



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!
This week I am reading "The Lost Summer Of Louisa May Alcott" by Kelly O'Connor McNees. Since I am just starting to read it, I am sharing the first two lines of the book.

Louisa May Alcott approached the ticket window of the Boston Passenger station clutching a large case and a black parasol. She asked for the tickets on hold under her name--she'd written a week before to reserve them.
