Teaser Tuesday-Dec. 27

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!

This week my teaser is from All the Flowers in Shanghai by Duncan Jepson:
"No, but if you never let other people see that you're not, and you never admit to anything bad about yourself, then because they won't risk showing you that they are not perfect, they won't challenge you and they'll leave you alone and give you face.  Anything less than perfect, though, means you will be treated accordingly."

pg. 26-27
***Please note that this is from an Advanced Reading Copy so the final printing may change.

Interesting advice! I'm wondering who's talking to whom in your teaser.
