“I keep wishing, reflexively, for a glimpse of the future, so I'll know what to do. But I don't kid myself. I have to feel my way forward blindly. I try not to be afraid. Even if you know what's coming, you're never prepared for how it feels.”
Natalie Standiford, How to Say Goodbye in Robot

“Even if you know what's coming, you're never prepared for how it feels.”
Natalie Standiford, How to Say Goodbye in Robot

“If you'd only let me come by myself, none of this would have happened. Having you around makes everything worse.'
She buried her head under her pillow. 'Stop it! you're so cold! You're heartless, you little robot!' The pillow muffled her words, but they still stung.
'I feel things,' I said. 'I'm not a robot!' I stamped my foot and screamed. Then I burst into tears. I touched the wet little drops and held them toward her. 'See, I'm not a robot. This is proof.”
Natalie Standiford, How to Say Goodbye in Robot

Thank you, Kimberly! It's so nice of you to write me. I'm sorry I haven't been more active on Goodreads yet--so many online things to juggle!

I have a new book coming in September--CONFESSIONS OF THE SULLIVAN SISTERS. It's different from ROBOT but I hope people will like it anyway. --Natalie
