Book Beginnings: Amazing Grace

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Amazing Grace: The Lives of Children and the Conscience of a Nation by Jonathan Kozol

" The Number 6 train from Manhattan to the South Bronx makes nine stops in the 18-minute ride between East 59th Street and Brook Avenue."

Riding the subway is very interesting how you go into and out of both good neighborhoods and bad in the blink of an eye, and how it is full of a wide cross-section of the populace of NYC, except for the very rich.

I know someone who rides the subway in NY several hours each day to and from work. This does sound like an intriguing book.
