We are towards the end of Island of the Blue Dolphins. Don't want to spoil it, but suffice it to say that there is a sad moment and it gets descriptive. I tried to hold back the tears once, twice and then a third time. Finally I had to ask a student to come up and continue reading so that I could get a tissue. OMG. In front of students? Just couldn't stop. I guess the lesson is to read ahead in privacy, right???
