Unbeknownst to Deatri's parents, this additional help their daughter would need, from a teacher, was actually Deatri being taken out of reading class to sit in the hallway with a tape recorder.

Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“The right path and easy path are usually two different things, and when it’s time to choose, always choose the right path over the easy.”
Deatri King-Bey, For Keeps

“Sometimes you have to call people out. Do that a time or two, and they learn pretty quickly how dangerous mirrors are. They rarely like seeing themselves.”
Deatri King-Bey, The Only Option

“Stop wasting prayer on things you don’t need help with. Prayers aren’t for wants. They are for giving thanks. God will supply the needs that you cannot obtain on your own by default, so there is no need to ask. Just thank.”
Deatri King-Bey, The Only Option
