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!
My teaser for this week:
"Finally, after five hours, the surgeon came to speak to us. We did not have to go into the "special room." Hanna had done well and I will never forget my first vision of her after her surgery. She made it! She looks great! Thank you, God!"
Page 27, Living with Rain Girl
This book is written by a Mother in the community I live in. It's about their struggles and joys with raising their autistic child. The quote I have above happened one week before Hannah (the little girl) had her second birthday.
It didn't take long to read the book :) Partially because I know the family (I'm Hannah's school bus driver), but mostly because it's an easy, though "teary" read. For those of as that are blessed with "normal" children - there is just no way to comprehend what it must be like to give birth to a child that has a heart defect, and is autistic.
If you know someone with a special needs child - this is a wonderful book. Hannah is such a sweetie - brightens every morning as she gets on the bus and is so happy to go to school :)
