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
- 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, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Ethan's fork drops, Ben look down at the floor, and I just sit there with my mouth open. I can't believe Jack would bring up...The Incident.

"Oh, so now you're at a loss for words?" Ethan says through clenched teeth. "Two seconds too late." He gets up and heads to the bathroom.
"Emme...", Jack's voice is a low whisper.
"It's okay, it's not your fault. I'm the one..."
I don't even want to think about what happened this summer. Ethan and I haven't talked about it since. Nobody has.
I was hoping that we'd returned to normal. Things seemed to be a lot better.
However, Ethan's abrupt departure from the table makes it clear:
Appearances can be deceiving.
