Teaser Tuesdays: What Alice Forgot


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!

What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty p. 39

"She put her hands to her face. If she was supposedly sending out 'invitations to her fortieth-birthday party,' if she was... thirty-nine -- she mentally choked and gasped for air at the thought -- then her face must be different. Older."

Alice has hit her head and has forgotten the last 10 years, so she thinks she's still twenty-nine. While intellectually she's grasping that it's 2008, not 1998, it's still a very difficult concept to wrap her mind around. Would your ten-year-ago self look in horror in the mirror, or be happy and impressed with you you turned out?
