Teaser Tuesdays: The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls

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!

The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls by Anton DiSclafani

"Yonahlossee was where important Southern men sent their daughters. I would later learn more: an Astor, via marriage to the Langhornes of Virginia, had graduated the year before I arrived."

Money is very important because this is 1930. But what is a surprise to us today is that they didn't realize yet just how bad what they were in was. I don't think it was even called The Depression yet. Thea's family has money, but it's not Old Money. She has no famous relatives.

I'm still curious about this camp, does it benefit the protagonist? Or is it some sort of punishment camp? Either way, I do hope you enjoy your read! :)

Curious about the camp and what will happen there.

My excerpt today from a soon-to-be-published young adult novel:

Sounds like a fascinating glimpse into the past and how "the other half" lived in the 1930s. I'll read this one for sure.

That she can go to a camp and her family isn't suffering financially has me curious. Usually when a story takes place during the great depression, it's about the ones who are destitute. Interesting premise.
