Tuesday Teaser: The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak

My two 'teaser' sentences are from page 26 of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

They'd been expecting a girl and a boy and would be paid a small allowance for having them. Nobody wanted to be the one to tell Rosa Hubermann that the boy didn't survive the trip.

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
- Grab your current read.
- Let the book fall open to a random page.
- Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
- You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
- Please avoid spoilers!

Check out other teasers around the blogs.

Sounds like a very sad situation. I've had this one on my TBR list for a while now - hoping to get to it this year. Good teasers.

It's pretty good. I'm glad I forced myself to read it. I don't think I'll get it done before the book club tonight but that's okay. I'm still going. I need to meet some people!

That sounds really sad, I've been wanting to read this one for awhile now. I probably will end up reading it for the WWII challenge. Thanks for the teaser...mine is posted here.
