Teaser Tuesday: The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett

This week my teaser comes from The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett, the first of his YA books featuring Tiffany Aching. I have cheated a bit this week and taken a few sentences, but the quote wouldn't have made sense if I didn't!

The teaser comes from page 51:

Miss Tick sniffed. "You could say this advice is priceless," she said. "Are you listening?"

"Yes," said Tiffany.

"Good. Now ... if you trust in yourself ..."

"Yes?"

" ... and believe in your dreams ..."

"Yes?"

" ... and follow your star ..." Miss Tick went on.

"Yes?"

" ... you'll still get beaten by people who spent their time working hard and learning things and weren't so lazy. Goodbye."

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!

    I dig the cover very psychedelic too.

    So how is it so far??

  23. Following ones star is good advice, but it doesn't necessarily imply forceful action, which is absolutely required!

  33. I LOVE Terry Pratchett books. Have you read the last Tiffany Aching book? You must have. The whole time I was reading it I was happy and sad at the same time, since it's going to be the last - the very last Tiffany Book. It was great.
