Teaser Tuesday and Where Are You? 02-23-10: The Girl with No Shadow

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's teaser is from The Girl with No Shadow by Joanne Harris, page 46:


What an interesting child, younger than her contemporaries in some ways, but so much older in others, she has no difficulty in speaking with adults, but with other children she seems awkward, as if trying to assess their level of competence. With me she was expansive, funny, talkative, wistful, willful but with an instinctive caution as soon as I touched - ever so lightly - on the subject of her strangeness.



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

I'm in Montmartre, the last village in Paris, so they say, in a chocolaterie, working my magic in more ways than one.
