Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at 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 this week:
"Our old piano. It had been so long since I'd seen it, I'd actually forgotten we had one."
Dirty Little Secrets by C.J. Omololu
From the outside, Lucy's home looks normal. Inside the front door is where the secrets begin. Towering piles of newspapers and magazines. Bags of junk flooding every inch of open space. The rotting smell permeating the air. This is what she's kept from everyone-that her mother's compulsive hoarding has reduced their lives to garbage...literally. With just two years until graduation, Lucy finally feels like a normal life is within her grasp. Her new best friend, Kaylie, and her longtime crush, Josh, make a future seem almost possible. Then one morning Lucy comes hom to find something she never expected, something that will change her life forever. And she must ask herself-how far can she go to protect her family's secrets?
This is a moving and compelling book. Parts of it were truly disturbing but I finished it late last night because I just couldn't put it down!
