Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesdays (March 31)


I live at the base of Crooktop Mountain in the southern Appalachians in what was Cherokee land. My mom is dead, and she never told anyone who my father was. So I live with my religious grandfather and my crazy grandmother. There is nothing to do here; heck, we can't even pick up a good FM radio signal. I'm glad finally to be out of high school. I work at the diner full-time just so I don't have to be at home.

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.


Nice people were warned that the docks was where a rough crowd hung out. Sometimes that was true, but usually it was just young people doing grown-up things and old people that didn't realize they weren't young anymore. (p. 32)

Oh, your teaser sounds funny and yet a little sad. Young people are always in such a hurry to grow up, and old people want to stay young...

Interesting title too! Thanks for sharing!

You set this up very well. I want to know more.

Excellent Where are you posting. Really gives a good idea what the book is about. Made me very curious.

Here is my teaser

That's kind of a sad commentary, isn't it? Makes me wonder about the context, so it's a very good teaser.

My teaser is here.

Hee Hee. No one wants to realize that they aren't young anymore. Good for them.

Nice teasers. Sounds like an interesting book. Think I'd stay away from those docks, though.

I especially liked the part about the old people not realizing that they weren't young anymore. Great teaser!

Here's my post.

Both your description of where you are and the teaser have raised my interest in The Killing Tree. I look forward to seeing what you think of it when you are done.
