Teaser Tuesdays: Unfamiliar Fishes


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading

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!

Unfamiliar Fishes by Sarah Vowell

"Acts 16:9 is the meddler's motto, simultaneously selfless and self-serving, generous but stuck-up. Into every generation of Americans is born a new crop of buttinskys sniffing out the latest Macedonia that may or may not want their help."


I'm not sure what page this is on because I'm listening to the audio book. A very large part of the story of how Hawaii became a state revolves around Christian missionaries. Which seems to me very appropriate for America.
