Teaser Tuesday (9): The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
Grab the book you are currently reading and randomly post a couple sentences.

I probably will not be receiving that many new books for a while, just because I haven't been buying or winning anything lately. But that's fine--I need to get a move on with all these books that have been piling up over the past few months.



HOW CAN I eat with him?
     I hate him. Hate him.
     How can I marry him?
     I am sick to the very center.
     I must think of a way out of this.
