Teaser Tuesday: My Friend the Enemy by Dan Smith (Feb 24)

Okay, so for those of you who are new to this meme, here's how it works:

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 current read is My Friend the Enemy by Dan Smith.

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Summer, 1941. For Peter in rural Britain, the war is a long way away, being fought by a faceless enemy. Until the night a German plane is shot down over woods that his missing dad looked after before he went off to fight.
Peter rushes to the crash site to see if there’s something he can keep, but what he finds instead is an injured young German airman. The enemy. Here.
And helping him seems like the right thing to do...
Here´s my quote, the first two sentences of the book:
I was in the far corner of the woods, setting snares, when the siren started. 
I stopped.
Does this interest you? Check back on Friday for my review!

    1. It's definitely a fascinating time period. This book approaches WWII from the angle of a small town in rural UK, which I haven't seen a lot of in books.
