Kate's Teaser:

"I'm sorry. I'm so sorry," Matthias muttered. He didn't think she could hear him, but her eyelids fluttered - once, twice ... Then, amazingly, they opened all the way.

... and ...

You couldn't stand by when the Population Police were killing children.

Charlene's Teaser:

"There should be a button on the side of our heads like they have on hair-dryer plugs."

"A reset button?"

"Yeah, and if you were doing it (something stupid) but you couldn't, like, reach or something,  your friend could push the button for you and save you from your own stupidity."

Kathy's Teaser, #1:

No squall could frighten Dany, though. Daenerys Stormborn, she was called, for she had come howling into the world on distant Dragonstone as the greatest storm in the memory of Westeros howled outside, a storm so fierce that it ripped gargoyles from the castle walls and smashed her father's fleet to kindling.

Kathy's Teaser, #2:

Irena was furious to be handled so roughly, but then she saw that the gendarme was a young boy, frightened, probably from the countryside, lucky to have a job at all. Most likely, he had no use for the Jews before the war; he was paid to mistreat them.

Kathy's Teaser, #3:

They had removed the body of the thief from the study using a folding cot from Kristoll's basement as a stretcher. They used it again to carry the body from the trunk of Kristoll's Ford up the hill and to the clearing.

Mandy's Teaser, #1:

She could bring terror to the neighborhood by pulling that mask over her head. Merchants would scream, "Lollipop, lollipop," and rush to the deepest corner of their shops.

Mandy's Teaser, #2:

"Me?" I asked. "Why me?" I turned to my mother. "Is Daddy trying to pimp me out?" I expected her to laugh. Instead she said, "He means well."

"'He means well'? What kind of answer is that?"

She just shrugged and went back to her glass of pinot grigio and reading the latest issue of Vanity Fair.
