So as not to show any ‘spoilers’, I have not included a synopsis for this book, however, if you want to find out more about it, just click on the book’s image.
If you don’t really want to read any ‘spoilers’ yourself, then you can ‘tease’ yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.
‘My Sister’s Voice’ by Mary Carter
I am Deaf. Not impaired. Impaired implies something is broken and needs to be fixed. I am not broken. I do not need to be fixed.
Dump them. Dump your parents like they dumped me.
There is obviously a real sense of betrayal and bitterness emanating from the speaker in the second quote.
Whilst in the words of the first quote and very much to my shame, I recognized instantly, what I and probably thousands of other ‘hearing’ people, automatically think about those who are deaf.
A couple of intriguing ‘teaser’ lines, I’m sure you’ll agree.
WANT TO JOIN IN TEASER TUESDAYS?
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of ‘Should Be Reading’.
Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:
1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share a couple of “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
4. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences, that give away too much about the book.
5. Remember to share the title and author too.
6. Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it and you can share other people’s.
It would be great if you then decided to leave a comment, as we all like to receive them and are interested in your thoughts.
