ON BOOKS ~ The Story of Edgar Sawtelle...

MizB asks you to:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
  • Share the title of the book the teaser comes from…that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

From pg. 18 of THE STORY OF EDGAR SAWTELLE by David Wroblewski (fiction)...

"Edgar was shocked to find words inside the walls of his house, scrawled by a man no one had ever seen. It made him want to peel open every wall, see what might be written along the roofline, under the stairs, above the doors."

I love the teaser! I've seen a lot of this book, and I was wondering what it was about. I still don't know, but your teaser makes me want to find out more.

Ew, it makes me think of that movie "23" with Jim Carrey. :)

Interesting teaser - makes me curious if he has an enemy, or something going on in his mind. Here's my Teaser!

LOL-I'm glad it's not like 23! It sounds much more enjoyable now.

Yes-my teaser was written my Phl McGraw's son and it is written directly to the child being bullied. Although I think it would be wise to have a parent read along and help the child take it all in and make it personal to their situation.
