Teaser Tuesday ~ Graceful

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for fun! 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! 

We have grown so comfortable in our girl-made hiding places that we forget the most important part of hide-and-seek:  the best part of hiding is being found. 

~taken from p. 13 of Graceful by Emily P. Freeman

The little white house on Gladstone Avenue had a driveway that ran the length of it on the right side.  The gravel popped and crackled under the weight of any car coming through, sending up gray billows of dust.  So we had some warning when Dad pulled his white Datsun up beside the house at the end of the day.  It was the automatic on your mark, get set signal to my sister and me.  We needed to get into position for a round of hide-and-seek.
