I hold the knife in my right hand and touch the blade to my palm. Gritting my teeth, I drag the blade down. It stings, but I barely notice. I hold both hands to my chest, and my next breath shudders on the way out.I open my eyes and thrust my arm out. My blood drips onto the carpet between the two bowls. Then, with a gasp I can't contain, I shift my hand forward, and my blood sizzles on the coals.I am selfish. I am brave.
- Chapter 5, page 47
This is one of my favorite quotes ever. It's loaded with emotion and intensity. Just like the rest of this AMAZING book.
