Welcome to Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by Should Be Reading: an opportunity to spark some creativity through the books we’re reading.
Here’s how it works:
- 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.
Today I’m showcasing a book that is an action-packed thriller by Erin Brockovich, in which she has created a protagonist in her own image. Rock Bottom features Angela Joy “AJ” Palladino, who left Scotia, W.Va., population 867, as an unwed 17-year-old mother following a terrible accident that almost killed her. Ten years later, after success and fame in a battle against Capital Power that earned her the sobriquet “the People’s Champion,” she returns to Scotia, to assist lawyer Zachariah Hardy in a fight against Masterson Mining’s new mountaintop removal project.
Teaser: Was I crawling back, a failure, a fool for returning to the town that had tried so hard to assassinate my dreams? Or was I really still just a kid myself, coming home at twenty-seven to be healed? p.4
What have the rest of you decided to spotlight today? Please come on over and share….
