Open the book you are currently reading and copy two or so sentences along with the title and author . The idea is to tease the reader into adding your book to her/his TBR list.
Mine today is from Amy Sorrell’s How Sweet the Sound, which starts (literally) with a bang and goes on to include this on page 113 where the main character is having her hair French braided by her grandmother’s servant:
“‘Oui, child I can braid anything long enough to hold between my fingers.’All the girls in my class coveted Ernestine’s plaits–even those who never talked to me otherwise. But Ernestine, she saved the braiding for me, smiling and humming “Jacob’s Ladder” as she pulled the strands tight. Said that’s her favorite song because of the reaching and climbing she’s done to come up out of her miry life.”
This promises to be more than your usual coming of age story.
