Teaser Tuesday #12

This week's Teaser Tuesday is from The Secrets of Truth and Beauty - Megan Frazer

Teaser (page: 125)

"Still, I imagine certain fathers and mothers telling their girls to stay away from the farm, for fear it might be catching. And teenage boys still come round hoping to see something illicit."

Teaser Tuesday is brought to us by Should be Reading.

5) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


  1. I just got this book from the library yesterday!
    I can't wait to read it. :)

  2. My teaser is from a book that's perfect for all ages -- geared to those who don't know much about football but would like to know enough to join in the fun when people are watching games. I don't want to stereotype, but one example would be the girl who has a football-loving boyfriend and wants to understand more. "A Sportscaster's Guide to Watching Football" by Mark Oristano is perfect for them. (That's how I know about it -- a mom I know has a football fanatic 13-year-old!)

    In addition to giving you the basics, there are also some great stories about life in the professional football world. So the author is watching a linebacker draw on his taped-up shoes (his ankle is taped on the outside) the shoe logo. Why not tape inside? Wouldn't that be easier. "But then I'd actually have to wear their damn shoes and I hate 'em. So I wear the brand I like and do it this way instead."

    Makes you wonder how many people are not true to their logos!
