TEASER TUESDAY - LILY by Holly Webb and the Words with JAM 1st PAGE Competition

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!

Lily by Holly Webb

In a world where magic is outlawed, Lily runs wild and neglected. Once rich and powerful magicians, now Lily's family hide away in their crumbling house, while her older sister, Georgie, is trained secretly in magic.

From the end of page 13 to the start of page14 

The house was simmering with anger, even more than it had been early in the morning. Lily wasn't sure what was happening, but when she had stolen out of the orangery earlier, she had seen Mama stalking through the passageways, the gold silk of her dress rustling with fury.

If you have a minute, and £6 to spare, you might like to enter the Words with JAM 
1st PAGE Competition.
The closing date is Friday 8th June. 
You have more than a week to polish up the first page and have a little fun.
I loved the fact that I could pay to enter using Paypal. 
On a related subject, I read the blurb on, the judge, Amanda Hodgkinson's début novel 22, Britannia Road... that was an opening page!
