Teaser Tuesday: What-the-dickens

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
4. 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!).
5. Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:
What-the-Dickens: The Story of a Rogue Tooth Fairy
"She saw a scissoring of torchlights in the breezeway and she picked up a muttering of voices. Whoever was here was making an effort to be secret. So they must guess that the house was occupied - even though it was dark, even though the neighborhood had largely been evacuated. What had tipped them off?
And what could they want? There was no food to speak of. Looters wouldn't look kindly on two jars of mashed carrots prepared for discriminating diners aged twelve to eighteen months."  - pg. 140, What-the-Dickens: The Story of a Rogue Tooth Fairy by Gregory Maguire

What are you reading this week?
