Teaser Tuesday - Sept 15


Today's teaser is from The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. In this scene, Jack is crazed with anger after a horrible tragedy in his family. I don't want to give anything away but it's very powerful. I'll be reviewing the book tomorrow. I really loved it.

From page 139:

He ran blind into her and knocked her down in the darkness. Her screaming filled his ear and poured into the empty spaces, ricocheting inside of him.

MMm...that's a great word-picture of sound. Seems kind of creepy, though. :-)

My teaser is from Barry Smith's Only Milo.

Very intense, but I think that's true of the whole book, too? Interesting teaser.
