Teaser Tuesday 5/4 LIFT by Kelly Corrigan
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!
My teaser today is from Lift by Kelly Corrigan. Kelly was at Talbot's of Annapolis last week giving a little chat to over 50 women. I met Kelly many years ago (2007?) at the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance trade show she was touring for The Middle Place. Liked her then and I like her now!
Lift is a letter written to her children, a tender portrait of risk and love, for anyone who wants to live life fully.
"You'll remember middle school and high school, but you'll have changed by then. Your changing will make me change. That means you won't ever know me as I am right now -- the mother I am tonight and tomorrow, the mother I've been for the eight years, every bath and book and birthday part, gone."-- Lift by Kelly Corrigan, p. 4.
What book will you tease us with, today?
