My teaser this week is from a wonderful new book for middle-grade (grades 4-6) readers, Towers Falling, which powerfully addresses two difficult topics: 9/11, and homelessness.

“The hardest word for me to say is please. Being poor, you've sometimes got to ask for stuff - food, toothpaste, even soap. I don't want to ask anybody for anything.” ― Towers Falling, by Jewell Parker Rhodes
