Teaser Tuesday and Where Are You? 12-29-09: One Amazing Thing

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.

This week my teaser is from One Amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, page 30:

Farah. She had entered Tariq's life innocuously, the way a letter opener slides under the flap of an envelope, cutting through things that had been glued shut, spilling secret contents.

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

I'm in an unnamed city in the US (probably LA or San Francisco). We've just experienced an earthquake, and I'm trapped in the basement of the Indian consulate with a group of people I don't know.
