Teaser Tuesday


A weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

The book:

Apple and Rain by Sarah Crossan



When Apple’s mother returns after eleven years away, Apple feels whole again. But just like the stormy Christmas Eve when she left, her mother’s homecoming is bittersweet. It’s only when Apple meets someone more lost than she is that she begins to see things as they really are.

The Teaser (more than two sentences this week, shoot me):

‘What’s your name?’

‘Apple,’ I say hesitantly.

‘Apple? Like Apple Blossom?’

I blink. Normally when I tell kids my name, they make a nasty joke about Crab Apples or Bad Apples or go on and on about iPads.
