Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading

This is how it works
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
  This weeks Teaser Tuesday comes from:

 Breakout by David Tchappat

Due to me being shut up from the Brethren, my job at the Kennard's factory became obsolete. No contact was allowed with the Brethren in any way. I was like some kind of leper. The priests informed Dad that he was to employ me from this point on.

This is taken from just after David attempted his first escape and was caught. Being shut up was being put in total isolation. No church, no socialising, not even eating with others and weekly visits and interrogations from church officers. His younger siblings were sent to live with other Brethren as his parents and one of his sisters were also shut up. His parents because of their obvious failure and his sister because she knew of the plan. It was close to 6 months before David and his parents were readmitted into the congregation.

I'd love to know what your teaser is this week. Leave me a link!
