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. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.
Today's teaser comes from an upcoming Amy Einhorn book I'm dying to share with you. Look for my review just after the new year, when the book is released:
It's unlikely that our parents ever looked up any of our names in one of those baby name books. The Riverside Shakespeare had obviously been the repository of choice. Once Rose had a summer camp counselor who, as an icebreaker, looked up the meanings of all the children's names, and Rosalind was horrified to learn her name means, yes, "beautiful rose," but also "horse serpent." Horse serpent? If that won't give a girl body image issues for life, we don't know what will. (p. 58)—From The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown (Putnam / Amy Einhorn, 2011) [Note: extract comes from an ARC and may not exactly match finished book.]
