Tuesday Teaser - 2/22/11

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! 

My Teasers:

"Mom doesn't yell at me anymore; most of the time she treats me like a boarder who should be shunned for not paying but for some reason can't be evicted..."

"Instead of hacking my way through a thicket of needy children and threatening punks near home, in Manhattan I saunter in a clearing from which I can see the horizon..."

Welfare Brat (Mary Childers) pg. 186-187.

Sounds like an interesting tale of urban survival.
