Teaser Tuesdays: The Group

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!

The Group by Mary McCarthy p. 62

"To her horror, now that he had said he wanted her on his terms, Dottie found herself having second thoughts: what if she had lost her virginity with a man who scared her and who sounded, from his own description, like a pretty bad hat? For a moment, Dottie felt cornered, but her training had instilled the principle that it was a mark of low breeding to consider that you might have been wrong in a person."

What scares Dottie is that the gentleman in question is asking her to come over and spend the night whenever she is on town and is inclined. While the 1930s are apparently much more progressive than I thought, they're not quite that progressive!
