Teaser Tuesday 4/14/09



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

My teaser:

"Three hundred teachers had to help twenty thousand boys. The women and children from Panyid, combined with the Itang and Dima refugee camps, meant our group numbered more than sixty thousand. The front of the walking line could be two days ahead of the last exhausted people who lagged behind with hunger, disease, and wounds."

p. 141 from They Poured Fire on Us From The Sky: The true story of three Lost Boys from Sudan.

This book is SO good and SO sad! I'm enjoying reading it because I hadn't known much (if anything) about the wars in Sudan before picking this up. Also it's going to be my first In Real Life Book Club book!

  1. We have a couple of Sudanese young men at our church. What great testimonies they have after heart-breaking circumstances!

  2. I definitely have to look this one up! Along the same lines I read a book this winter called There Is No Me Without You by Melissa Greene about a orphanage in Ethiopia.
