Teaser Tuesday #9

Teaser Tuesday is a 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 “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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser Tuesday of this week is taken from The Devouring by Simon Holt. I've kind of cheated, I've chosen to give you a whole paragraph instead of two sentences ...
"Early the next morning, Reggie's dad didn't yell at her. He didn't speak a word to her. He woukdn't even look at her when she passed him in the kitchen. The sad silence made it unbearable, and she wanted to take his hands in hers, to talk to him, to make him hear the truth. But it wouldn't do any good. Reggie was like a phantom to him. "
