Stuck in Your Head # 5

I'm going to give you the line from the books I've read that make my mind crave the rest like coke.
(it's my version of Teaser Tuesday, just so you know)

  I touch myself.
  A bit.
  A lot.
  (There are people who’ve told me that you shouldn’t admit that sort of thing too early, on account of the fact that people might get offended. Well, all I can say to that is why the hell not? Why not tell the truth? Otherwise there’s no bloody point really, is there?
  Is there?)
page 2, paperback
(I know, I probably shouldn’t have given so much but it’s all needed and this isn’t the only part I wanted to put up, but it’s both what the story is, and what it came from.
My other fav line is larger and it’s more about the change and him waking up. I didn’t think that would be appropriate)

When Dogs Cry by Markus Zusak
First Published 2001 in Pan Pan MacMillian Australia 
 YA, contemporary fiction

‘You’re a bit of a lonely bastard, aren’t you? said Rube.
‘Yeah,’ I answered, ‘I guess I am.’

But Cameron Wolfe is hungry.
He’s sick of being the filthy, torn, half-smiling, half-scrowling underdog.
He’s finally met a girl.
He’s got words in his spirit.
And now he’s out to prove that there’s nothing more beautiful than an underdog who’s willing to stand up.
