Teaser Tuesday: One Amazing Thing

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 "teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
~BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! ~Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists!

This is my first time participating in Teaser Tuesday, and my teaser is from Chitra Divakaruni's One Amazing Thing.  As part of the "Gulf Coast Reads" reading initiative, my library system's book clubs are joining many other communities to come together to read and discuss one book.  The author so happens to be a native to this area, which makes it even more exciting for our Book Clubs.  ^_^  I'm enjoying it thoroughly and can't wait to meet the author herself in October at a meeting at my library.  

"When I failed tenth grade for the second time, my parents figured it was no use wasting more money on my school fees and decided to marry me off.  I had no objections; it was not as though I had anything else to do."

~ p. 109, One Amazing Thing by Chitra Divakaruni
