Quote #10

Coraline slept uneasily that night, waking from time to time to plot and plan and ponder, then falling back into sleep, never quite certain where her pondering ended and the dream began, one ear always open for the sound of something scratching at her windowpane […]. (13.27)

This long, flowing sentence emphasizes how Coraline's mind is whirling. But even with the distraction, we'd say she's not satisfied until she has the other mother trapped and gone for good.
