Teaser Tuesday

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

After much searching, I was recommended Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein which I am currently in the middle of reading. So far it's good... that's all I'm going to say. If you want to know more you'll have to wait for the review which will be posted sometime next week!

Then he said one word. It sounds the same in English and French and German. Kerosene. 

And he left me here with the door closed.
