Teaser Tuesday Feb 8

It's that time of the week to tease your senses.
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!
This week my teaser comes from an amazing book that I am reading: 






Teaser: "Somewhere on the endless expanse of the Pacific Ocean, Army Air Forces bombardier and Olympic runner Louie Zamperini lay across a small raft, drifting westward...........Their bodies, burned by the sun and stained yellow from the raft dye, had winnowed down to skeletons.  Sharks glided in lazy loops around them, dragging their backs along the rafts, waiting."
