Teaser Tuesday: Black Mountain Breakdown

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.

“I want to go to Lookout Mountain, Tennessee,” says Agnes’s little sister Pauletta, who has recently changed her name to Babe, dancing in on the plastic runner which goes from the living room through the dining room to protect the beige wall-to-wall carpet.  Babe, at ten, is a showoff and old for her age.  But Crystal likes her.

  1. Sounds like a good book. I love Look Out Mountain too!

  2. Lee Smith is great. she has a new book out Mr Darcy Meets the Blue-Eyed Stranger. I will see her in Charlottesville this weekend. yea!

    Here’s mine

    plus a video of the hunt for the perfect photo for the book’s cover — fun!

    • I would imagine that Lee Smith is a fantastic speaker. The title of the new book threw me for a second because it sounded like some Pride and Prejudice related thing. But the title turns out to be Mrs. Darcy Meets the Blue-Eyed Stranger and is not related to Austen at all. Phew!

  3. The teaser sounds sweet. I have not heard of this book before so I will be looking it up. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/03/teaser-tuesdays-captivity.html

  4. I hope that you enjoy your book. Here’s mine.
