“I see the glaciers calving, retreating dozens to hundreds of meters every year. I see the pack ice disappearing in record speed. Yes, I have seen bears in good shape – but I have also seen dead and starving polar bears. Bears walking on the shores, looking for food, bears trying to hunt reindeer, eating birds’ eggs, moss and seaweed. And I realized that the fat bears are nearly exclusively males which stay on the pack ice all year long. The females, on the other hand, which den on land to give birth to their young, are often slim. With the pack ice retreating further and further north every year, they tend to be stuck on land where there’s not much food.”  -  Kerstin Langenberger

“i really don’t know what you’re doing here. get out!” he waved one hand as if shooing an annoying fly away. “i said get out, cheese girl!” when i didn’t move, he seemed to be annoyed. “why doesn’t she disappear?”
“could be because i don’t answer to the name of cheese girl, idiot.”

grayson cleared his throat. “i’m afraid, she… er.. came here with me, henry.” judging by his tone of voice, he seemed to find this somehow embarrassing.
“you know my cheese girl?”
“looks like it.” grayson rubbed his forehead with the back of his hand again. “she’s my new little sister. i found that out this evening.”
“oh, shit.”

Ruby Red ?¿

So last week I started reading Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier, and I’m not exactly sure how I feel about it yet. I’ve only just started it though and am only in the first few beginning chapters. It’s just kind of hard for me to wrap my mind around what is going on.
