Teaser Tuesdays: Warriors Don’t Cry

Teaser TuesdaysTeaser 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!

My teaser:

[amazon_image id=”0671866397″ link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” class=”alignleft”]Warriors Don’t Cry: A Searing Memoir of the Battle to Integrate Little Rock’s Central High[/amazon_image]”Nobody presents you with a handbook when you’re teething and says, ‘Here’s how you must behave as a second-class citizen.’ Instead, the humiliating expectations and traditions of segregation creep over you, slowing stealing a teaspoonful of your self-esteem each day.”

—[amazon_link id=”0671866397″ target=”_blank” ]Warriors Don’t Cry[/amazon_link], Melba Patillo Beals, p. 6

Another book we are exploring as an all-school read. These two sentences helped me make up my mind.
