acter's name)

Here's mine from: The Yellow Room Conspiracy by Peter Dickinson (p. 25):

"This is Paul Ackerley. He was at school with me. Lucy Vereker."
"Hello," she said. "Nan's in the library."

"What is Nan doing in a library?" said Gerry.
"Practising ping-pong with an eyepatch."

"Paul is a bit overcivilised, so I thought it would do him good to spend an afternoon with the Visigoths."
"Aren't you going to ask me about the eyepatch?"
"I assume she's bet someone--your father?--that she can beat him like that."
"Was he always as irritating as this?" she said.
