I was wondering if it would be plagiarism for me to answer a story identification question with direct quotes from the text. For example:
Question: The plot is as follows... The book starts with a girl waking up in a vehicle crash."
The girl’s name is Merlin. She wakes up in the wreck of what she thinks is an ambulance but is actually a “flyer”
She was in the back of a van surrounded by blankets, pieces of broken glass and unfamiliar implements. Through a dark tinted window under her, running the length of the cabin she could see foliage pressed against the glass. A matching window above showed the sky. Clearly she had been in an accident and the van had overturned.
Ambulance, she thought dazedly. I was in the back of an ambulance so there must have been something wrong with me before the accident.
Is this plagiarism if I state that this is the text from the book?
