I'm at school. At a friend's classroom really, cause I didn't feel like being at AP Lit when I already knew what I have to do for today and tomorrow, and all the way to Thursday. So I'm posting.
I'm reading The Hunger Games right now since I kind of left my copy of Darklight by Lesley Livingston on a friend's backpack (but Ill get it later!). And from what I am getting right now I am really liking this book. I love the main character's voice, and it seems so original!
Now for the teaser:
"Siting at Prim's knees, guarding her, is the world's ugliest cat. Mashed-in nose, half of one ear missing, eyes the color of rotting squash. Prim named him Buttercup, insisting that his muddy yellow coat matched the bright flower. He hates me. Or at least distrusts me. Even though it was years ago, I think he still remembers how I tried to drown him in a bucket when Prim brought him home. Scrawny kitten, belly swollen with worms, crawling with fleas. The last thing I needed was another mouth to feed. But Prim begged so hard, cried even, I had to let him stay. It turned out okay. My mother got rid of the vermin and he's a born mouser. Even catches the occasional rat. Sometimes, when I clean a kill, I feed Buttercup the entrails. He has stopped hissing at me.
Entrails. No Hissing. This is the closest we will ever come to love."
