Teaser Tuesday

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!

"But word spreads quicker through a church than chicken pox through a preschool, and before long the phone is ringing off the hook. I let Mama and Dog deal with it."
Breathing by Cheryl Renee Herbsman
I love the picture that sentence creates, even though it is hard to get an idea what the book is about. This book's Southern charm can be heard in that line, though, and that is one thing I am loving about it.
