Teaser Tuesday (06-15-10 edition)

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!
Today's Teaser:

They said that Aris' mother kept rats in an old shed in back of their house. They said that every day, before he came to school, Aris went out there and fed them chicken's eggs, that sometimes he even fed them live baby chicks. They said that his grandfather was buried in that shed under the floorboards and they said that Aris' mother chopped his father's head off with an axe and that Aris had watched her do it.
-- The Saving of Aris by NovaMelia (page 71)
