DJ´s Bait in the Box # 84
“For a second I was confused … because I knew her from somewhere, I´d seen that face a million times before. Then I took a step forwards so I could get a proper look and the whole world went silent, frozen, darkness roaring in from the edges and only the girl´s face blazing white at the centre; because it was me. The tilt of the nose, the wide sweep of the eyebrows, every tiniest curve and angle clear as ice: it was me, blue-lipped and still, with shadows like dark bruises under my eyes.”
If you recognize the quotation, or if you think you are able to guess who wrote it, please post a comment. Just leave a hint, don´t spoil the fun by giving too much away. The book will be reviewed on Wednesday.

The author spent sometime in Malawi, I think.
Jose: and you are absolutely right.
Dorte - If I'm right, this title is very much a lookalike kind of title, isn't it?
Happy New Year right back at you.
Haven't a clue about the book, but love the box. Just wanted to say Happy New Year and wish wonderful things your way in 2011.
Thoughts in Progress
Margot: you could say so :D
Mason: thank you.
A second novel by someone whose first had a Sylvanian theme in the title?
Happy new year to you, Dorte!
I have no idea! :) But I did want to stop by and say Happy New Year!
Maxine: exactly! - and thank you!
Alyce: thank you!
