Teaser Tuesdays, March 16

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 either in the comments below or on your own blog (give a link to your blog so we can check it out!)
  • 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 so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week's teaser:
"He called when they were coming to New York to spend the summer with their aunt, an eccentric spinster who'd been living in the swank building on Edgecombe Avenue since the days Duke Ellington, Paul Robeson, and Joe Louis called it home...When the two men arrived, they found the gold-leaf ceiling in the once grand marble lobby peeling, but Aunt Vashti's apartment was a Harlem Renaissance time capsule." 
p. 73, Uptown by Virginia DeBerry and Donna Grant
