Teaser Tuesday


I know, I know, the moment Madeline turns her back I let this place go all haywire.

But better late than never, eh?

Teaser Tuesdays are a weekly book-themed meme, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. The rules are as follows:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • Be careful of spoilers! Don't ruin the book to others by revealing important plot developments. (So the last words of a dying central character are probably not okay...)
  • Share the title and the author of the book as well, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can look up the book and add it to their TBR list.
Here's our teaser for this week:
"But how does He manage to do what you pray for if He doesn't get time to talk to the secretary before it's too late?"
Grandmother pretended to be asleep, but she knew she wasn't fooling anyone, and so finally she said that He'd made it so nothing bad could happen between the moment you prayed and the moment He found out what you prayed for. And then Sophia wanted to know what happened if you prayed while you were falling out of a tree and you were halfway down.
The Summer Book by Tove Jansson, p. 49
