Teaser Tuesday: The Tear Collector by Patrick Jones

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

My choice this week is my current read, The Tear Collector by Patrick Jones(for review)
Reading level: Young Adult
Hardcover: 272 pages
Publisher: Walker Books for Young Readers (September 1, 2009)
pg 71 end of paragraph 3 (Pure awesomeness)

"Before they arrive, I take the monogrammed handkerchief from my pocket and wipe away his tears. There are only a few, but like an inexpensive perfume or a narcotic drug, it takes just a tiny amount to make a big difference. I'm flush as I walk upstairs."
