Teaser Tuesdays - April 28

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • 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!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser this week is from a book that has been on my TBR list for a while. I'm finally reading it.

'The Colonists' by Jack Cavanaugh (book 2 in the 'An American Family Portrait' series)

'Desperately, he kicked at the wolf with his left foot, once, twice. The dark wolf released his grip and fell to the ground. Jared pulled himself up into the tree, out of reach of the wolves.
"Jared! Are you all right?" It was Chuckers yelling from the other tree.
"I've been bit on the ankle, but I'm all right!" he yelled back.
"What do we do now?" Will cried.
"Wait for them to go away!"
What had begun as a glorious, late-night test of courage and manhood ended as the three adventurers sat in their trees and watched the sun come up.'

But they should still be able to get a good story out of it.
