teaser tuesday (48)

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!


“‘It was my elbow,’ she said. ‘When I was a chimney sweep.’


His gaze fell to her hands. ‘Why keep it?’


So that she’d never forget what it was to wriggle through hot, narrow shafts, when one slip could mean her death.”


-p. 249 of Meljean Brook’s “Here There Be Monsters” in Burning Up

That's quite a teaser. Can't imagine what's going on there, but I think I'd want to keep my elbow, too!

This gives such silly mental images. Is she sitting next to her elbow? Is it some inanimate object that she strapped to her elbow? Is she armless? Ok, not so funny that - but really an odd quote. :)
