Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser 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!

 On January 29, 1951, David Lacks sat behind the wheel of his old Buick, watching the rain fall.  He was parked under a towering tree outside John Hopkins Hospital with three of his children - two still in diapers - waiting for their mother, Henrietta.  A few minutes earlier she'd jumped out of the car, pulled her jacked over her head, and scurried into the hospital, past the "colored"bathroom, the only one she was allowed to use.


~ pg. 13, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, by Rebecca Skloot.
