Teaser Tuesdays: MISS TIMMINS' SCHOOL FOR GIRLS by Nayana Currimbhoy



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Miz B. of Should Be Reading.



"Daughters were raised on malai and rosewater, loved and nurtured and trained to be sweet and soft and pliant. They were to be led tenderly to the great crossing before they turned twenty. On the other side, as daughters-in-law, they must eat dirt for the first ten years. They must be prepared for a life of criticism and scrutiny and acts of random cruelty."
