Teaser Tuesday


Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
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!

Children had always been powerless, but never more than now when, despite Merell's intelligence, she possessed nothing with which to defend herself.
  "You'll never be sent to a foster home, Merell, I promise you that.  You're surrounded by people who love you.  Nothing bad will happen to you or your sisters."

I'm on the fence about this book, I will have to wait for your review, then I will decide. I hate sad books about children, so hope it isn't a sad one.
