teaser tuesday (9)

Tuesday, September 1, 2009 |
It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page. Post two (or more) sentences from that page, along with the title and author. Don’t give anything vital away!

“‘If we start selling my body to rich old ladies now,’ Nick said, ‘Can I quit school?’

‘No,’ Alan answered with a sidelong smile, warm as a whispered secret. ‘You’ll be glad you finished school one day. Aristotle said education is bitter, but its fruits are sweet.’

Nick rolled his eyes. ‘Aristotle can bite me.’”

-p. 3 of Sarah Rees Brennan’s The Demon’s Lexicon
