Teaser Tuesday #1 - Let the Great World Spin

This is my first ever Teaser Tuesday and I am so excited to share with you what I'm reading. I'm only in the first chapter but it has me hooked!

What is Teaser Tuesdays
 
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• 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!

    1. Isn't it? I have to read this for my English class; otherwise, I probably would have never chosen it. Thanks for the follow, I've returned it!
