Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Stop by there, to see other blogs participating as well! :)
I'm in the middle of The Unfailing Light, so here is a teaser:
I walked between the aisles of wooden desks, which were probably older than me, and stopped in front of a dark-haired girl with bright green eyes. In French I asked her name, and then placed the chalk in her hand. "Charlotte, will you write the verbs as we speak them again?"
"Oui, Mademoiselle," she said, standing up from her desk.
Madame Fredricks was no longer paying attention to the class. She was absorbed in her romance novel. As long as the class continued according to my lesson plan, she would not bother me and I would receive a passing grade.
Charlotte stepped up to the board and raised her chalk, ready for the class to recite their verbs. But before anyone could say anything, her hand moved with a jerk and she began to scrawl across the board, in Russian: STAY OUT OF THE LIBRARY.

Don't you love a good ghost story? :)
Be sure to stop by next week, on the 26th, to see my review as a part of the blog tour!
