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!

 In the predawn darkness of August 26, 1929, in the back bedroom of a small house in Torrance, California, a twelve-year-old boy sat up in bed, listening.  There was a sound coming from outside, growing even louder.  It was a huge, heavy rush, suggesting immensity, a great parting of air.  It was coming from directly above the house.  The boy swung his legs off his bed, raced down the stairs, slapped open the back door, and loped onto the grass.  The yard was otherwordly, smothered in aunnatural darkness, shivering with sound.  The boy stood on the lawn beside his older brother, head thrown back, spellbound.
