Teaser Tuesdays and It's Tuesday...Where Are You?



I'm in England learning the true meaning of Christmas.
~ A Christmas Carol
____________________________________________________



TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Please avoid spoilers!


" The school is not quite deserted," said the Ghost.
"A solitary child, neglected by his friends, is left there still."
Scrooge said he knew it. And he sobbed.

p.44 A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
