Den ukentlige utfordringen hos Flukten fra virkeligheten: del ett par setninger fra en bok du leser nå på bloggen din.
Dagens smakebit er fra s. 2 i Team Human av Justine Larbalestier og Sarah Rees Brennan. Larbalestier er en ny forfatter for meg, men Brennan kjenner jeg fra The Demon's Lexicon-trilogien så jeg forventer mye humor og velskrevne karakterer.
Don't get me wrong. Cathy's not stupid. She's really smart: without her encouraging me, I wouldn't be doing AP English and history. She's a dreamer. You know the type: reads poetry by the bucket load - Keats! Plath! Chatterton! - gets so into books she walks into walls, gets so into telling me a story she walks right into traffic and I have to grab her and yank her back to safety. She likes history more than the news and likes books better than most people. Of course she thinks vampires - since many of them are older than dirt and thus basically history books with legs and fangs - are totally fascinating.
