Teaser Tuesdays

• Grab your current read.
• Let the book fall open to a random page.
• Share with us two "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!

Follow Me by Joanna Scott
Page 113 - She didn't want to go home. She had no home of her own and was fighting a swell of desperation when Mole asked in a whisper, "You want to learn to drive?"
