Teaser TuesdayTeaser 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!

I'm so excited about this Teaser Tuesday! It is from new Tatiana de Rosnay, A Secret Kept! De Rosnay's previous novel was Sarah's Key. One of Reading Group Choices 2009 Top Ten Favorite Discussible Books. A Secret Kept is my next read.

"I am shown into a small, drab room, told to sit down and wait. Six empty brown chairs face each other on tired linoleum. In a corner, a fake green plant, shiny leaves coated with dust. I do as I am told. I sit down. My thighs tremble. My palms feel clammy, my throat parched. My head throbs. I think, I should call our father now, I should call him before it gets too late. But my hand makes no effort to grab the phone in the pocket of my jeans. Call our father and tell him what? Tell him how?" -- beginning paragraph, A Secret Kept, Tatiana de Rosnay, September 2010. 

What's your TT?
