Teaser Tuesdays (10)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read

Open to a random page

Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

"What do you mean 'reindeer'?"

Beneda's mouth dropped open. "Stavvy, honestly. There's lots of things we don't have anymore. We don't have... clothes-drying machines and mechanical transportation and furnaces that heat your whole house, and cotton and silk and... and cows and horses and ... and all kinds of other animals and birds and -oh, lots of things."
"I miss them." 
"You've never had them!"
" Yes, but I know about them. That makes it different."
