Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. You share two "teaser" sentences from your current read. From any random page, but make sure not to give away any spoilers.
I am currently reading The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen. A young adult fantasy novel in which the main character, Conner must try to learn how to be a prince in less than three weeks or lose his life. The storyline reminds me of Aladdin....a street urchin pretending to be royalty. Here are my two teaser sentences.
(p. 193) "I asked you here because you spoke honestly to me before. If, I'd entered that room with a face smeared in mud and asked another servant how I looked, he'd have bowed and told me I looked as beautiful as ever."
