Teaser Tuesday and Where In the World Are You? The Hiding Place

Should Be Reading - Miz B - hosts this weekly event. We throw out a couple of sentences from our current read (without spoilers, of course) to entice you to read the book.

From The Hiding Place by Trezza Azzopardi, page 22:

My mother mixes up a bowl of something grey for Luca, rapidly beating milk into powder. Her fury travels down the spoon and into Luca's dinner. I am breast-fed: I get rage straight from the source.

It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.

I'm in Cardiff, Wales in the 1960s. Life is not altogether pleasant with a father who gambles away the money meant for our food and rent, and a mother who struggles to keep body and soul together.
