Teaser Tuesdays (May 18)

"I didn't even know what town I had been found in.  We had been told daily of our good fortune, reminded that we had food, clothes, shelter, teachers and even a small allowance.  It had been repeatedly pointed out that many children with parents weren't as well off as we were.  Was it a form of brainwashing?"

pg. 137, Poison Study by Maria Snyder


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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

  36. Hey, there is a point there. I never thought about it being brainwashing with being told others are not as well off as you. So true! :) Thanks for the great teaser.
