Teaser Tuesday: Blue by Lou Aronica

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:
          The simple fact that a peck on the cheek and a reference to their old stories could set his mind reeling underscored for Chris the absurdity of what he'd said to Becky last night. I give up. Why the hell had he even said that in the first place? He was angry and frustrated, of course, but he prided himself on never reacting out of anger with his daughter. He'd felt the need to say it, though; not to suggest to Becky that he was washing his hands of her (he hoped she hadn't interpreted it that way), but to tell her that he was resigned to allowing their relationship to be whatever she felt it should be. He was acknowledging that he couldn't control her and that he was ceding the fate of their future together to her. pg. 100, Blue by Lou Aronica
