Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesday: French Milk by Lucy Knisley


I'm 22 and between college and grad school. I want more than anything to be a graphic novelist or a cartoonist. This year my mom turns 50, and the two of us are living in Paris for a few weeks. We see all the usual things, but we also discover bookstores and cafes and flea markets. We go to the movies, we eat and drink and eat some more. Along the way, not only do I get to know the City of Lights but I get to know my mom as well.


For more Where Are You? answers, visit Raidergirl3 at An Adventure in Reading.


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.


Something I love about the art we see in all these beautiful old churches: the saints! St. Lucy (my fave) isn't very big in France, unfortunately. (She cut out her eyes, and they grew back!) p. 59

I'd like to spend some leisure time just wandering the bookstores, eating and drinking in Paris. Sounds like a dream vacation.

I love this tease because I love reading books about young adults in the time after college (when the world holds nearly boundless opportunity for them). Thanks for the tease.

That's an interesting teaser. I would love to go to Paris and just live there, I'm not gonna lie.

This looks wonderful! I'm hoping to plan a trip doing all of those in Paris next year, but with my husband. Maybe I should read the book first!

Nan 8/25/09, 5:44 PM  

Oh, this does sound good.

I love the extra little punch of the final comment. It's such an entertaining contrast to the rest of the person's observations. Very good teaser.

My own is at Bookishgal.
