Okay, you all know the rules. Take your current book and pick out a quote - two sentences that are interesting andcompeling and make us want to read it. (Does anyone really pick a random sentence?) No spoilers, please!
Today, my spoiler is from The Disappearance by Efrem Sigel. It is the story of Joshua and Nathalie Sandler and the disappearance of their 14-year-old son, Daniel. It's heartbreaking to see how something like this can tear a family apart. And how well do parents really know their teenagers? Not all that well, if the Sandler's experience is anything to judge by:
"To his shock, he realizes that all these observations apply to Dan. He must have had, did have a secret life - a communal secret life, involving a whole other cast of characters, a performance place, a range of behaviors that Joshua and Nathalie knew nothing about."
