Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
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!
I'm not the biggest sports fan in the world so I was reluctant to read this story centered around baseball. Surprise on me! I enjoyed reading about Ruby Thomas and her boundless will and eternal hope for a better life.
Diamond Ruby by Joseph Wallace
From the cover:
"Seventeen-year-0ld Ruby Thomas, newly responsible for her two young nieces after a devastating tragedy, is determined to keep her family safe in the vast, swirling world of 1920's New York City. She's got street smarts, boundless determination, and one unusual skill: the ability to throw a ball as hard as the greatest pitchers in a baseball-mad-city."
"She tried to picture what it would be like to wear such things as a rule. To lie on luxurious pillows on Sunday morning, with nothing to do but pick at breakfast off fine plates while music played and the sun streamed in through unstreaked windows." (Page 79)
