Teaser Tuesdays (Jan. 17)

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!

 By the next Monday, the leaves on that mimosa tree have turned black like it burned instead of froze.  I come in the kitchen ready to tell her how many days we have left, but Miss Celia's staring at that tree, hating it with her eyes the same way she hates the stove.  She's pale, won't eat anything I put in front of her.


~ p.157, The Help by Kathryn Stockett

I've heard so many good things about this book (and movie!) but I haven't gotten around to reading it. This teaser definitely has me wondering what happened to the poor tree and what's going on with Miss Celia!

I love this book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Celia's situation just broke my heart. Happy Reading!
