After the scorching heat, Tropical Storm Aere (Bebeng) blew in, and now I'm freezing. Brrrr.
Anyway, today's teaser is a rather unusual addition to my "retold tales" collection. I also have another book, Zel, by the same author. Guess, guess.
It had been a long time since Xing Xing had felt anyone cared for her. She missed that terribly, for her parents had been devoted to her, despite the fact that she was born a girl.

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!
