Finding myself in a bookshop today (imagine!), I picked up an interesting looking YA book and was reading the back cover. The usual blah about the protag's being just a normal kid, worrying about his parents divorcing and then this: ..."and struggling to keep his world in tact."

I'm a great believer in a good store of tact myself, of course, but ...!  (The publisher is Bloomsbury, btw. Their shame deserves naming.)

Everyone in the world may have seen this already, but on the off-chance it hasn't got to every pocket... 

Younger Daughter and I love it, despite its being played all the time on TV.

"He was, naturally, one of those who could slide one eyebrow up without the other one moving at all," is one of my favorite quotations of all time. It is, in fact, the only quotation I've ever consciously plagiarized, although I didn't ever actually show that particular story to anyone ;-).
