Teaser Tuesday (247)

Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the weekly Meme that wants you to add books to your TBR, or just share what you are currently reading. It is very easy to play along:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.


The Existence of Pity (36% Kindle)
    - Jeannie Zokan

Tom smiled, but it was wrong -- all wrong. How did anyone ever fall in love? There were so many things that could mess it up, like dumb hats and awkward moments.

Growing up in a lush valley in the Andes mountains, sixteen-year-old Josie Wales is mostly isolated from the turbulence brewing in 1976 Colombia. As the daughter of missionaries, Josie feels torn between their beliefs and the need to choose for herself. She soon begins to hide things from her parents, like her new boyfriend, her trips into the city, and her explorations into different religions. 
Josie eventually discovers her parents’ secrets are far more insidious. When she attempts to unravel the web of lies surrounding her family, each thread stretches to its breaking point. Josie tries to save her family, but what happens if they don’t want to be saved?


  1. Can definitely see the adolescent in the protagonist from the teaser. My Teaser is from The Bear and the Nightingale.

  2. I was drawn into the familiarity of that situation...and now I want to know more. Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “THE VANISHING YEAR”

  3. Well, that goes from a typical teenager, somewhat rebellious, to a darker and more foreboding theme. I'll look forward to seeing your full review later. Here's my intro/teaser for today: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1s6
