Teaser Tuesday

I know, I don't do Teaser Tuesday very often, but I think it's a fun meme, so when I'm reading something I think has great lines (and have it handy) I'll try and post a Teaser Tuesday for it.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Rules:

(1) Grab your current read

(2) Open to a random page

(3) Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

(4) 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!)

(5) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"The Prophet was called. And all us kids standing around watching things unfold were sent home.

"This is the Devil's work,' Prophet Childs said. 'Get on home to your fathers and tell them what you saw."

We ran."

-The Chosen One (ARC) by Carol Lynch Williams
This book is addicting and one that's hard to put down. Expect a review soon!!
