Teaser Tuesday - May 1


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

• 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 teaser Tuesday is from: Black Boy White School by Brian F. Walker

    "...They think they're supposed to be smarter and richer, live in better houses and everything. When they fall short of all that, they try to blame it on black people so they don't feel so bad about themselves....Its sad, when you really think about it. Expecting to go out and be the king of the world, but ending up stick in East Armpit, Maine."
