Teaser Tuesdays (8)

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 "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
Be careful not to include spoilers!
- Share the title and author, too.

Book: White Oleander
Author: Janet Fitch

Plot context: In this quote, Astrid was asked to try and remember a happy memory from her past.
"I tried to remember, but it was like looking for buried coins in the sand. I kept turning things over, cutting myself on rusty cans, broken beer bottles hidden there, but eventually I found an old coin, brushed it off. I could read the date, the country of origin."

I really like this analogy! (Analogy, right?) :P This seems like an interesting novel.

I read this years ago and thought it was really great. I still think about it from time to time, which is the sign of a really good book.

Glad I found your blog -- I've been hopping around.
