Tuesday Teasers

tuesday-tMiz B and Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:

Grab your current read.  Let the book fall open to a random page.  Share with us two (2) sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
51lu7ktla1l_sl500_aa240_The Tuesday Teaser “rules” say to grab your current read, but mine is in the car just now, so this teaser comes from the closest book at hand at the moment.  You’ll find this line on page 61 of The Little Giant of Aberdeen County, a debut novel by Tiffany Baker that will be coming out in January 2009.  I received this ARC just yesterday from the wonderfully generous Miriam at Hachette Book Group (thanks, Miriam!)  I haven’t started it yet, but I am really looking forward to it!
“I sat on my bed, elbows planted on knees, and faced the mirror that was glued to the back of the door.  Already, I almost filled the whole narrow span of it, edge to edge, my body lumpier than any monster I could imagine.”

What are you reading this week?
