Mom to Madre and Teaser Tuesday!

I  had a wonderful interview with Mom to Madre:
I hope you all will stop by and check them out! It is an amazing cause!

Mission Statement
Mom to Madre extends a hand, in English and Spanish, to young moms trying to beat the odds. We focus on mothers who are participating in Social Service programs in San Diego County for low- income families with children from birth to age five. Our outstanding volunteers provide bilingual information, education and support to help moms provide their young children with the loving foundation necessary for learning and excelling in school. ©Mom to Madre 2010

Definición de la misión
Mom to Madre tiende una mano a las madres jóvenes que tratan de sobreponerse a las dificultades. Nos centramos en las madres con niños en edades entre 0 y 5 años, matriculados en centros preescolares para familias de bajos ingresos, en el condado de San Diego. Nuestros voluntarios están pendientes de proporcionar información, educación y apoyo, en inglés y en español, para que las madres pueden dar a sus hijos las bases necesarias para aprender y sobresalir en la escuela. ©Mom to Madre 2010

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:

“Well, we aren’t really sure. He was an indigent – no identification, no living relatives. But he claimed to have been born in 1876.”
I stared at him. “That would make him one hundred and thirty-one years old.”

The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey – page i (of the prologue)

  37. Awesome teaser! It has really caught my attention! Btw, new follower :)

  38. Oops, I commented over THERE. Guess I should do it here, too! LOL

    Thanks for sharing your interview link. Is this Orange County, FL? If so, I wish I’d known about the festival when I went to uni in Tampa!

    I’m curious: Is the book your grandmother gave you Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce? If so, I LOVED that series. It was the first book I read by Pierce, and she was my favorite author for a really long time. I still love to read her books!

    Your book sounds really interesting looking at the synopsis, actually. It’s not my normal type of read, but it’s intriguing. I’m going to have to see if I can get my hands on a copy!


    As for your teaser, I'm still not sure I want to read The Monstrumologist (I'm so over the Supernatural thing), but I'm glad to hear you're enjoying it! <3

  39. Nice teaser! (Sorry I’m late ;)
