This week my teaser lines come from Nightbird, Alice Hoffman's lovely new novel for young readers. It's a quote about magic, from a truly magical tale:
That was when it happened. Magic always sneaks up on you that way, when you least expect it, when the time is absolutely right. (p.192)This one really surprised me -- I generally like Hoffman's writing, but this was even better than I expected.
