Teaser Tuesdays: Unbroken

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!

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand p. 27

"Louie Zamperini was on his way to Germany to compete in the Olympics in an event that he had only contested four times. He was the youngest distance runner to ever make the team."

Ms. Hillenbrand certainly found an unusual and outstanding young man to write about - he went from running from the police for petty crimes, to setting national and worldwide running records. I'm also horrified and impressed to see in the photos that he appears to be running in leather dress shoes like men wear with a suit! I am not sure that athletic shoes had even been invented yet
