Teaser Tuesday - 05/16/12

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:

"The first time I put the [winter body] suit on him, we were in the store, and immediately he looked like he'd been to a taxidermist. He stood stiff as a freshly stuffed dog. He wouldn't move his head. He wouldn't even move his eyes...

Eventually, I solved the problem of Atticus's bodysuit rigor mortis, [by] putting him in the suit and driving my dead, stuffed dog to Mosely Pines, where Atticus loved to run free and chase after squirrels...

[I] put him down. Nothing. Then I called out, "Look, squirrel!" And just like that he Atticus was off and running. It was only after he treed the furry little creature that he realized he'd been found out in his effort to convince me that the suit was made of lead. The look in his eyes at that moment was priceless. It said, quite simply, Oh shit!" 

Following Atticus (Tom Ryan) - pg.69-70
