Teaser Tuesdays: Bowling Avenue

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!

Bowling Avenue by Ann Shayne p.40

"And one other thing: she wanted your help with so many things, but she could never ask. She felt judged by you, and that was hard for her."

Whoa! Delia has just found out the truth about what her deceased sister Ginna really thought about her from one of Ginna's neighbors. It's bad enough to lose a sister, but even if you haven't been the best sister in the world (and who is?), is this kind of vicious honesty really called for? Particularly when there's nothing you can do to fix the situaion? This felt really cruel and very understandable that it would cut Delia to the core.
