teaser tuesday (31)

Tuesday, March 9, 2010 |
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!

“Snow pointed to the bucket. ‘Gather as much water as you can and soak the dirt around the tree. Don’t get too close.’

‘How close is too close?’ Danielle asked.

‘If the tree tries to eat you, you should probably back up.’”

-p. 51 of Jim C. Hines’ The Stepsister Scheme
