Teaser Tuesday (9)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. It includes two sentences from your current read without any spoilers!

This weeks teaser comes from Number by Rachel Ward:

"For years later, I watched a man in a scruffy suit write it down on a piece of paper: Date of Death: 10.10.2001. I'd found her in the morning. I'd got up, like normal, put my school things on, helped myself to some cereal. No milk, because it stank when I got out of the fridge. I left the carton on the side, put the kettle on, and ate my Coco Pops while it boiled. Then I made Mum a black coffee and carried it carefully into her room. She was still in bed, kind of leaning over. Here eyes were open, and there was stuff, sick, don her front and on the covers. I put the coffee down on the floor, next to the needle." pg. 4

Okay, definitely a lot more than just two sentences but this paragraph was just too good to cut it in half. Hope you enjoyed it!
