Teaser Tuesdays: Big Brother

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!

Big Brother by Lionel Shriver p. 19

"Edison was my family, the sole blood relative whom I clearly and cleanly loved. This one attachment distilled all the loyalty that most people dilute across a larger clan into a devotion with the intensity of a tamarind."

Sibling relationships are incredibly complicated. Pandora's with her brother Edison is even more complicated than most, and it is about to get a heck of a lot more difficult when she sees him at almost-400 pounds for the first time.

Sounds interesting. I hadn't thought of family that way. My teasers this week are from United We Spy by Ally Carter and Killing Floor by Lee Child. Happy reading!

Stories about sibling relationships are almost always fascinating. This sounds like a book I'd enjoy.
My Teaser is from CAPE MAYBE.

I read We Need to Talk About Kevin and really liked it. I would love to read more by Shriver someday. This one sounds interesting!
