Här kommer några av många underbara citat från Hex Hall av Rachel Hawkins.
"You know," someone said off to my left, "I usually find a blocking spell to be a lot more effective than yelling 'Bad dog,' but maybe that's just me."
"Soh-fee-yuh," Mrs. Casnoff said in her Southern lilt, turning my relatively simple name into something that sounded like an exotic appetizer at a Chinese restaurant.
"I go by Sophie," I said quickly, hoping to avoid being known forever as Sohfeeyuh.
"I'm sorry if I hurt your feeling," I said, "but... um, it's not you, it's me?"
Oh, that was original, Sophie.
Just before I could do something super lame like spread my arms wide and burst into the chorus of "Colors of the Wind," I heard a voice say, "Why aren't you in class?"
The Vandy tiltes her head at me and narrowed her tiny eyes. "You what?"
"I... I like you tattoos. Your ink. Your, um, tats. They're really cool."
