Teaser Tuesday-July 12

Check out Teaser Tuesdays from Should Be Reading.  TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

Grab your current read.

Let the book fall open to a random page.

Share with us two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.

You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

Since I am still reading Dreams of Joy by Lisa See, that is where my teaser is from again this week:
Tell me where you're from.  I ask because in a few days I'm having the Central Committee issue a new and stricter law-Halting Outfow from the Villages-to keep all peasants from coming to the cities.

pg. 132
***Please note that this is from an Advanced Reading Copy so the final printing may change.

What a fascinating novel this is so far!

Interesting teaser. I don't like the sound of the new law.

I think the books is set during the 1950s when it wasn't a good time to be in China! Great teaser!
