teaser tuesday (81)

Tuesday, May 8, 2012 |
It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted every week by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page (or if you're reading on an electronic device, pick a random number and scroll to that section). Post two or more sentences from that page, along with the book title and author. Share your find with others in the comments at Should Be Reading, and don't give anything vital away!

ship of souls by zetta elliott book cover
“When Mom got sick, I had to enroll in a public school, and I didn’t exactly fit in.  Kids on my block called me 'reject.'  Grown folks at church called me 'an old soul.'  One girl at school told me I talked like a white boy.”

p. 3 of Zetta Elliott’s Ship of Souls
