First chapter, first two paragraphs, is a meme hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea.
I’m reading The Bonesetter’s Daughter by Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club. Here is the opening:
These are the things I know are true:
My name is LuLing Liu Young. The names of my husgands were Pan Kai Jing and Edwin Young, both of them dead and our secrets gone with them. My daughter is Ruth Luyi Young. She was born in a Water Dragon Year and I in a Fire Dragon Year. So we are the same but for opposite reasons.
I know all this, yet there is one name I cannot remember.

• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
From the same book:
LuLing shook her head. “That’s not my real mother.”
Ruth’s mind turned in loops, trying to translate what her mother meant.
