Teaser Tuesday: Polite Society


Before turning in, she pads softly down the hall to her mother's door.  She peeks in and gazes at the sleeping figure that is such a stranger.

-- Polite Society, a charming debut novel by Colleen Sohn, illustrated by Maren Jensen

I think this is a great scene because the idea of a mother who is a stranger raises so many possibilities. 

There are still a few of the lovely, limited edition hardbacks left (see here for details). And, Polite Society is now available in a Kindle edition, with all the illustrations.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

  3. Hi Gilion,

    I checked out the synopsis for this book and I am now intrigued to know just how these lines fit into the overall story, as the lines sound so emotional, yet the book's premise sounds a little chaotic and up-beat!

    By coincidence, I am currently reading about a daughter who shares a home with a mother who is almost a stranger to her, although I think that the consequences in 'Don't Let Me Go' are doomed to be quite dire.

    Thanks for sharing your lines,
