Teaser Tuesday: Haunting Jasmine by Anjali Banerjee

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:
          I get up, insomniac that I am, and peruse Auntie's shelves in her tiny living room. A draft wooshes in through an open window, ruffling the pages of a book perched on the sill. 'The House at Pooh Corner.' Scrawled inside the front cover are the words in black ink, 'Jasmine, don't be afraid to start again.... A. A. Milne'.
The handwriting leans backward, and a couple of small ink blotches mar the page. Auntie must have written this. A. A. Milne could not have penned the words. He died years ago and left only his books, his characters, his imagination. - pg. 120, Haunting Jasmine by Anjalee Banerjee
