“You wanted to believe that getting older, growing up, would change everything, transform you into the amazing person you were meant to be. But what if it didn't? What if you had to stay you forever?”
Jean Thompson, The Humanity Project

“She had a heart like a Twinkie, full of oversweet goo, yes, a real junk-food heart.”
Jean Thompson, Who Do You Love: Stories

“We were afraid of so many things: Of our children, who lived in their own world of casually lurid pleasures, zombies and cartoon killers and thuggish music. Of our neighbors, who were buying gold and ammunition and great quantities of freeze-dried food, and who were organizing themselves into angry tribes recognizable to one another by bumper stickers.”
Jean Thompson, The Humanity Project
