Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday

My teaser today is from:


Back to Bataan
by Jerome Charyn

“Oh, Jack Dalton,” she said. “He has a wild imagination. He likes to fling words around. He thinks half the school is going to marry him.”

She didn’t have to shame me in front of her friends. Arturo was laughing into his fat cheeks. Barnaby had a chocolate rainbow on his lips. I didn’t even bother with the comic books. Marvel would have to fight the Japs without me. I walked home.


  1. Awww - what a sad teaser! Although you've got my attention, I'll have to look for this book!

    Stop by and see my Top Ten / Teaser Tuesday!

  2. Sounds like a good one--I hope you enjoy(ed) it! My teaser: Secrets to the Grave by Tami Hoag.

  3. Very cruel ... but Jack Dalton makes me think of MacGyver. LOL.

  4. Interesting ... and sad. Seems like a good read.
    I'm following you now :)

    Here's mine:

  8. Great teaser choice this week!

  9. Hi Mary Ann,

    Jack is either a bit of a show off who has been brought down a peg or two, or a nice guy who has been shown up and humiliated in front of his mates.

    That makes Coco either a 'tease', or a girl who has finally had her eyes opened.

    I look forward to your review of this one, thanks for sharing those great lines,


  10. Mean friends. I hope things get better for our heroine.
