Teaser Tuesday asks readers to:
- Grab your current read.
- Let the book fall open to a random page.
- Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
- You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given.

We had once – not an experience to be repeated – even taken them to an Australian restaurant that served kangaroo.
