Today I finished reading a Nebula-nominated YA fantasy, Seriously Wicked, by Tina Connolly. It's great fun, about Camellia, a not-quite-typical teenage girl being raised by an evil witch bent on world domination. In this passage, on page 77, Camellia is discussing her own popularity with boys.

"When your life revolves around filling the outrageous demands of a cranky witch, other social interactions seem way less scary. Okay, maybe I wasn't made of cool like Jenah, and maybe boys didn't just drop dead at my feet like they did for Sparkle, but in general, boys were not foriegn scary creatures."
