Tuesday Teasers is hosted by Should Be Reading. The rules are as follows:
Grab your current read and let the book fall open to a random page. Share two sentences somewhere between lines 7 and 12 and the title of the book that you’re getting the teaser from. Please avoid spoilers! Read the official Tuesday Teaser Rules.
My teaser is from Frank Delaney's Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show. From page 177:
