Teaser Tuesdays: Amazing Grace

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

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!

Amazing Grace: The Lives of Children and the Conscience of a Nation by Jonathan Kozol p. 24

"I think they hate you because you are not in their condition. 'I am in hell and you are not and so I hate you and I have to try to bring you down to where I am.'"

This is a young man in the South Bronx neighborhood of Mott Haven, talking about the drug dealers in the neighborhood.
