Flipped through the book and landed on page 98 which really made me want to step into the book!
Morton’s library is what I dreamed libraries should look like when I was a little kid: nothing like the shabby bookshelves at my underfunded primary school. All three facing walls are decorated with floor-to-ceiling windows. Each has a “reading nook” built in and they are punctuated throughout with bookshelves that soar up to the high celling. The ceiling is a work of art itself, all original beams and plaster ceiling roses. They even have those massive ladders on wheels so you can get to the books right at the top – I swear I will have my Beauty and the Beast moment before I leave.

I flipped through the book and ended up on page 96!
Do you ever feel small? Like so small you could fit in your own pocket? Like as small as, I don’t know, a baby, back when you had someone to cut your food and fee it to you? I wish I had someone to do that right now. Or bring me ginger ale and crackers the way Sloane’s mom does when she has cramps or the flu, the way Mom never did, not even before Darren.
I feel so small, I wonder if I’m invisible. I feel as small as a flea.

By the end of tonight, I will be Andy Keating’s girlfriend. It’s all I can think about as I leap over piles of my dirty clothes and shimmy past the fairy gardens that fill my window ledge as “Take On Me” plays for the hundredth time. I land on a discarded dress – the third one I tried on tonight – and go sliding across the laminate wood floor. I’m glad Andy can’t see me now… but I still do one more spin as the lead singer from a-ha hits the last high note. Usually I don’t listen to eighties music, but this isn’t just another song. This is our song.

I flipped through the book and saw this part over at 209.
“We’re doing a murder mystery night,” the guy explained to us as his monocle bounced out again. He’d opened the door a little wider, and I could see that there was a group of people, all dressed up, standing around in little clusters with drinks, and what appeared to be a dead body on the floor, lying in a pool of blood.
“That would explain the corpse,” Cary said, sounding relieved. He handed over the dry cleaning. “Laundry will be ready Monday.”
“Thanks so much.”
“Actually?” The corpse sat up and looked toward us. Someone had done what looked like a very realistic bullet hole in the center of her forehead. “Can you see if they have it by tomorrow?”
“I’ll ask,” Cary called.
She gave him a cheerful thumbs-up, then lay down again, her eyes going glassy and head lolling to the side.
