Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. You know the rules: grab your current read, open to a random page and share a two sentence teaser with us (no spoilers!). Be sure to tell us about the book, so we can add it to our TBR list!
My teaser this week comes from Mending the Moon by Susan Palwcik. This passage struck me because I have so many friends that I consider family.
“Only relatives get bereavement leave; it doesn’t matter that Melinda was her best friend. These days, Veronique and Sarabeth could register as domestic partners, if Sarabeth were still around, but there’s nothing similar for platonic friends so close they might as well be family.”
So sad, but we all have people like that – the family we’ve chosen for ourselves.
