Teaser Tuesday (#29)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Here are the rules:
  • Open your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include spoilers!
  • Share the title and author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser!
Technically, I've already finished this book, but I just loved it so much that I just had to give a little snippet from it!  This is... a brilliant moment in the book, one I was smiling stupidly at and made me fall in love with Trudie, even though you never 'meet' her...  I really loved this book and I hope you love the quote!!

Someone Else's LifeFrom Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale, Chapter Four, Page 52
"Poor Eileen?  She didn't have a clue!"
She'd come in, introduced herself, then spoke to Mum ve-ry slo-wly and loudly.  Mum just stared at her, looked at me and Sarah and then said, "I'm sorry, are you quite well?"
"The look on her face!" Sarah laughs.  "Priceless!"

Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale
 
Synopsis From Blurb, Check The Book Out On Goodreads
One Secret Can Change Everything.
When Rosie Kenning's mother, Trudie, dies from Huntington's disease, her whole world falls apart.  Not only does Rosie desperately miss her mum, but now she has to face the fact that she could have inherited the fatal illness her self.  Until she discovers that Trudie wasn't her biological mother at all...  Rosie is stunned.  Can this be true?  Is she grieving for a mother who wasn't even hers to lose?  And if Trudie wasn't her mother, who is?
But as Rosie delves into her past to discover who she really is, she is faced with a heart-breaking dilemma - to continue living a lie, or to reveal a truth that will shatter the lives of everyone around her...
This book is truly, truly amazing!  Beautiful, sad, life-affirming, thought-provoking...  Seriously, before I write my whole review here, let me recommend this to everyone!  It's a 5 Star book for me, and I can't wait for what Katie brings out next!!
 
 
Well, that's my little teaser!  Hope you liked it!
 
What's your teaser this week? :)
