This week's teasers comes from the soon to be released book Jackaby by William Ritter. How could I resist a book that's been described by the publisher as "Doctor Who meets Sherlock Holmes? William Ritter's debut YA novel features a detective of the paranormal as seen through the eyes of his adventurous and intelligent assistant in a tale brimming with cheeky humor and a dose of the macabre."
Here are a few sentences in the voice of Jackaby's soon to be assistant, Abigail Rook from a postcard she wrote to her parents on p.14
As you had previously cautioned, a professional dig site proved to be no place for a young lady to run around. Currently in seek of a better place to do so.
So, what's your teaser this week? Please leave a link or your teaser in the comments.
