I had Random.org select a page for me and that was page 193!
‘But where are we going to find fresh hare ears and an eyeball?’ asked Calypso. ‘There’s no way I’m going to hurt an animal. Not even to help your grumpy aunt.’
Alfie nodded. ‘I agree.’
Then on the top shelf he spotted them. EVIL EYE GOBSTOPPERS.
‘We’ll use one of those sweets for an eyeball!’ he said.
The gobstoppers were large and bloodshot. They stared out of the jar. Alfie selected a large dark brown eyeball with a big black pupil.
‘What about the hare ears, Alfie?’
‘That plant in the corner has leaves a bit like ears, long and sort of pointed.’
Calypso looked doubtful.
‘Let’s just give it a go,’ said Alfie.

“Emmaline Dorathea Black.”
The shrieking voice echoed down the wide hallway leading up to the kitchen doors. It startled the kitchen’s cat, a gnarled old tom who’d been investigating an interesting stain on the floor mat at the entrance, and it made Emmaline Black jump and fumble the tea tray from which she’d been stealing strawberry tarts.
There was a sharp crack as the tray hit the dessert cart, and one of the tarts she’d been squirrelling away into her sash hit the carpet with a sad little splat.
There was no time to mourn the loss of the pastry though, because another harpy scream came shortly after the first, considerably closer this time.

I flipped through the book and settled on page 177. Creepy stuff there! 
I step past the carved wooden doors into the public library after school, feeling its eyes following me in. Eyes everywhere. For a moment, I experience a surge of panic, remembering how it seemed as though Uncle Ty’s and the cop’s eyes were missing when they came to question me yesterday. I take in a deep breath, let it out slowly. Try to think about kittens.

I flipped through the book and ended up on page: 122.
“But my favourite memory is how excited you were the day you met Jane.”
“Tell me.”
“You came home on the first day of second grade and told us you’d just met the apple of your eye.”
“I did?”
“You did!” his dad said with a laugh. “You must have heard that phrase somewhere. Your mom and I couldn’t stop laughing. And then we found out that she lived right on the other side of the fence.”
Ben smiled big, remembering how excited he’d been to discover that his new friend Janet was only an oak tree away.
