Teaser Tuesday/ The Red Umbrella by Christina Diaz Gonzales

Tuesday, May 18, 2010
Welcome to Tuesday Teaser.

Miz B at Should Be Reading sponsors Teaser Tuesdays asking that you to: 
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  •  Share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
This week's my teaser comes is from the Red Umbrella by Christina Diaz Gonzales

What a difference a few months made! Before, I didn't want to think about the people being jailed , killed or forced to leave their homes. I thought those people must have done something  wrong or just didn't love Cuba enough. But now I knew better. It had become clear. Castro was, in one way or another, eliminating those who did not agree with him.
