Teaser Tuesday–Ashes and Nowhere Girl


Ashes by Ilsa J Bick is a suspenseful, gripping read.  It’s also got me completely stressed out, so I am hopping between it and Nowhere Girl.

With no sense of smell, your memories dropped like pennies out of a ripped pocket, until the past was ashes and your parents were blanks: nothing more than the holes in Swiss cheese.


Nowhere Girl by A. J. Paquette is a riveting read, too!  Young Luchi has lived her entire life in a Thai prison, but after her mother’s death, she has to venture into a scary new world beyond the prison walls that have always protected her.  I love the prose and how beautifully the words fit together.


For the first time in days, I hear voices.  I’m curled over on myself, pressed into my cramped hiding spot, clinging to the dark like it’s a life jacket.

The voices move closer.

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!
