"Look up the Plaza Regent, Blink, in the shivery morning light. Count the floors---take your pick." -Opening lines
"And only when she feels her foot going to sleep does she decide to get up. It hurts. She has to lean on the tilted pony and shake the pins and needles out of her leg. 'Owww!' she cries out loud, and then laughs. There she was, expecting to be bludgeoned to death, and here she is now, moaning about a few shooting pains." -p. 56
"The sky over Kingston looks like someone stuck a giant syringe into it and sucked out all the color."---p.181
"By the time you've waded to shore dragging that fool boat behind you, you're about as tired as a human can be. It's a deep tired, deeper than your bones. It's a give-up kind of tired."---p.257I haven't even started this book yet, but by the opening line and the quote from page 56 I'm not even sure what to expect. I have heard good things about the book, though, so I shall jump into it soon and find out. Interestingly, as I snooped around a bit more I notice that a lot of the book is written in second person. That is something that isn't often seen in YA Lit.
