"Well, the year and a half long wait for this was worth it. (and looks like I'll have to wait for another year before book 3 comes out *cries* but oh, well...)

It was as poignant and as enthralling as the first, and it's hard to put down. What I als..." Read more of this review »

“Being in love with someone who doesn't even know you exist isn't the worst thing in the world. In fact, it's quite the oppostie. Almost like passing in a term paper that you know sucked, but having that period of time where you haven't gotten your grade back yet -- that kind of exhale where you haven't been rejected, although you pretty much know how it's going to turn out.”
Tonya Hurley, Ghostgirl

“If you expect nothing, you can never be disappointed.”
Tonya Hurley, Homecoming

“You can't have it both ways. Love is too powerful to hide for very long. Deny it and suffer the consequences. Acknowledge it and suffer the consequences. Revealing it can either be shameful or it can be liberating. It is for others to decide which it will be.”
Tonya Hurley, Ghostgirl

“Because we don't know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four, five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps 20. And yet it all seems limitless.”
Paul Bowles
