Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a reandom page.
Share with us two (2) sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

My teaser comes from Schooled by Anisha Lakhani (appropriate for the first day of school, don’t ya think?)

From page 45:

The remainder of orientation was spent preparing my room, typing up lesson plans, and attending inane department meetings and faculty workshops with titles like Deep Down We Are All Visual Learners and Your Student, Nanny, and You: Finding That Right Balance.  I had assumed that a school like Langdon-springboard for the Ivy path, education bastion of the elite- would have a rich language arts curriculum.  I was wrong.

  4. If it’s too foggy, we play indoors; either Beauty Parlor – brushing each other’s hair until it crackles – or Dead Bride. Dead Bride is not a complicated game like Snakes and Ladders; it’s quite simple. p. 174 The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.
