Share two “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!

This week, I have two teasers from two books from the Chronicles of Chrestomanci series by Diana Wynne Jones. I love the series!
Witch Week by Dianna Wynne Jones:
“She held the end of the broom handle in both hands and tried to point it at the town. But the broom had other ideas. It wanted to go around the edge of the town.
Larwood House is a children’s boarding school. Many students are supposedly witch orphans, but no one knows who the witches are. In this alternate world, witchcraft is illegal and witches are burnt at stake. This story begins when someone in class 6B writes a note to one of the teachers: “Someone in this class is a witch.
Conrad’s Fate by Dianna Wynne Jones:
“I hate Gregor,” I said while we were going down in the lift with the shoe basket. “You couldn’t do some magic to make him fall face first into the sandwiches at Tea, could you?”
(…) “It’s tempting,” Christopher said.
Conrad Tesdinic is told that he has bad karma, and sent to work at the Stallery Mansion to cure it. There, he befriends a certain Christopher Smith. Christopher has a secret – he is a powerful nine lived enchanter from another world, here in search of his friend Millie. Together, Conrad and Christopher find her, and while doing that expose a big fraud going on at the Mansion.
