Teaser Tuesday May 7, 2013

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can 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!

My Teaser Tuesday is The Guilty One: A Novel by Lisa Ballantyne

" The vast majority of clients have had really difficult upbringings...D'you know how much a damaged child in the care system will cost the state throughout the course of its life?
Irene narrowed her eyes, considering, then shrugged." 


  1. It's true they probably cost a lot. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my teaser today! Hope you're enjoying your book.

  2. Really good teaser! I can't help but wondering what the situation is, and why Irene acts so nonchalant about it... I love your blog background, btw!

  3. Sad & true - sounds like it's intense. Thanks for dropping by Ali's Books!

  4. That's a serious teaser. I'm also wondering why Irene shrugs it off.

  5. Good teaser! And so true!

    Here's my Teaser Tuesday

  6. Wow, I love this teaser, and the cover of this book is intense, like a held breath. Love it! Thanks for sharing. :)

    New follower!

  7. Nice tease. My blood pressure increased just from reading it, because it too my mind to how wretched the U.S. foster care system is.

  8. I've never heard of this book but I'm interested to know the context of their conversation. Great teaser

  9. Very insightful teaser. Thanks for sharing!
