Teaser Tuesday: The Wonder Spot

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Basically, open the book you’re currently reading and share a couple of sentences from that page on your blog.   Avoid spoilers of course.

Here’s an excerpt from my current read.  The narrator is talking about her roommate Venice.

She said, “I was named for the place of my conception,” and it sounded like she was claiming that the city had been named for her.

But then she said, “I’m lucky they didn’t name me Gondola.  Or Canal,” and I went all the way from hating to liking her, and the distance made me feel like I loved her.

from The Wonder Spot by Melissa Bank, p. 58
