“Tuesday morning, the second day of the spring semester, I was waiting in front of Nash’s locker when he arrived, walking down the hall alone for the first time since I could remember. His two best friends were gone, and we’d broken up. He was alone and probably miserable. And I couldn’t help wondering how he’d gotten to school, considering he didn’t have a car and no longer and anyone to bum a ride from.” (30)
“We passed the closed art and music room doors on the way to the parking lot, but as we approached the library, a sudden shrieking shredded the midday quiet. Tod and I ran into the library to find Chris Metzer, president of the robotics club, standing between a table and the chair he’d obviously been sitting in moments earlier, face scarlet, eyes wide as everyone in the room stared at him.” (90-91)
“The desktop was cold beneath my folded arms, and I could feel the crack in the seat of m chair that pinched my leg when I wore shorts. Both of those facts should have meant that everything was fine. That I was still in my darkened classroom, with twenty-nine other students feigning interest in the history of French Architecture.” (215)
“’Because maras suck the life force out of people while they dream’ I was half-embarrassed by my lack of proof, but thouroughly convinced I was right. ‘Sabine shows up at Eastlake, and suddenly there are 3 teachers dead. And they all died in their sleep. It’s not a huge leape in logic.’” (100)
“By the time the second semester of my junior year began, I’d already faced down rouge grim reapers, an evil entertainment mogul, and hellions determined to possess my soul.” (8)
“Tod had just switched to the midnight-to-noon shift reaping souls at the local hospital, and since reapers didn’t need sleep, he was now free every afternoon to bug his sill-living friends. Which consisted of me, Em, and Nash.” (15)
“What did I want? I wanted Nash. The old Nash, who’d loved me and wanted to protect me, and had risked both his life and soul to help me. But I didn’t know- couldn’t believe- he’d had time to truly get himself back together. I wanted Sabine to transfer back to wherever she’d come from. I wanted to turn back time and make things right again.” (42)
“’Hey shouldn’t you guys be in class?’ Tod asked obviously trying to change the subject.
‘I have a free period.’ And the only thing stopping me from going off campus for a long lunch was the fact that all my friends had actual third period classes. Speaking of which…
‘Shouldn’t you be in art?’ I asked Em.” (89)
“After staring at the remnants of the previous day’s coffee, I decided making a fresh pot would be too much trouble and opted for a soda from the fridge instead. I popped the tab as I sank into my dad’s chair from the couch, where Alec now sat watching me in nothing buy the gym shorts he slept in.” (121)
