Teaser Tuesday (10)

"Teaser Tuesday" is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This Tuesday, I intend to share two teaser sentences from Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird and two teaser sentences from The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart by Mathias Malzieu.

"The one place where a man ought to get a square deal is in a courtroom, be he any color of the rainbow, but people have a way of carrying their resentments right into a jury box. As you grow older, you'll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don't you forget it - whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash." (Chapter 23)

"I've just kissed the girl with the voice of a nightingale and nothing will ever be the same again. My clock is pulsing like an impetuous volcano." (p.87)

The Boy with the Cuckoo Clock Heart has a lovely cover and I find the quote intriguing
