teaser tuesday (61)

Tuesday, June 7, 2011 |
It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted every week by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:


Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page (or if you're reading on an electronic device, pick a random number and scroll to that section). Post two or more sentences from that page, along with the book title and author. Share your find with others in the comments at Should Be Reading, and don't give anything vital away!


“Noah thought about it. ‘Well, maybe when I’m very old I’ll get married,’ he said finally. ‘Like when I’m twenty-five. There’s a girl in my class, Sarah Skinny, who’s my fourth best friend, and I expect we’ll get married one day, but not for a long time yet.’”


p. 68 of John Boyne’s Noah Barleywater Runs Away

Interesting teaser.

I love this teaser! Childhood is fantastic...twenty-five is "very old" and you have fourth best friends and beyond. Life is all downhill from there, kids! :)

barmybex said...

hehe this made me chuckle.

I'm not far from 25, I always find it funny when kids consider that old. I should be offended but it's too funny.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. :D

Idris said...

Super cute! Love that 25 is old and how cool that he has enough best friends to call someone the fourth!
