Teaser Tuesdays: Queen Esther & the Second Graders of Doom by Allie Pleiter


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 Teaser:

"Essie had her own personal classification system for the branches of womanhood. There were the "ponytails," which had a subset containing the unpretentious and practical, and another subset of the entirely-too-perky. This could usually be distinguished by height. Not of the woman, but of the ponytail. High ponytails signaled high-level perkiness. Low ones generally denoted practicality."

  7. Fun to read a bit from my book here! I'm afraid my hair is too short to wear a ponytail anymore, but I was a "low" when I wore one many years ago.
