I live in a small town in Maine. We don't have much money, but Gram says Daddy is a genus and could build anything. We live in a ranch house he built hisself.

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog. Note: this teaser was found by using Amazon's "surprise me" feature.

He sets on the stool by the woodstove where Madeline's coaxin' the fire and he puts on his boots. I see them boots are still wet."
