Teaser Tuesday!

To get you ready for my upcoming review on No Turning Back (by the beginning of next week, I promise), I chose to do this week's Teaser Tuesday on one of my favorite works of literature.  Ready for the teasing?  Begin!
  1. Grab your current read.*
  2. Let the book fall open to a random page.
  3. Share with us two (2)** "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  4. Share the title and author of the book, so we can investigate on our own if we like the teaser you've given!
  5. Please avoid spoilers!
*To keep this feature periodic, I will be using both teasers from current reads, and from books I've read before, but haven't discussed on this blog.

**Quantity of sentences may vary, depending on how long it takes to finish the thought within those line parameters. Teasers should still make sense!

The quote is from Helen Zenna Smith's Not So Quiet..., a feminist account of British women volunteering as ambulance drivers during WWI.  The title is a response to Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front. 

"The Bug was sitting up screaming about men with no faces when Commandant stalked in in her God-Almighty way and ordered her to stop this nonsense immediately, with the result that The Bug wrenched herself free, flew outside, started up her bus, and was off like a rocket before one could say knife."
