Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

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!

My Teaser:

Since I’m still on my current read I was a few weeks ago due to being overly busy, I decided to add a teaser from a previous read.

“Tell me about your son.”
Her face brightened. “Cooper.” She ran her finger around the rim of the water bottle. “He’s my joy. Cooper's seven. A second-grader. He’ll be eight soon. He was diagnosed with leukemia a year ago.”
Leukemia. The word his him hard. Cancer. He managed to maintain his composure. “That’s very hard on you.”
“It’s harder on him.” She lowered her head. “He’s a great kid. You should meet him.”
