This arm belongs to a man named Marty.

This summer, I'm finding myself taking an unexpected journey. Not a road trip, not a flight to an unknown city, no cross-country trek to the tune of "This Land is Your Land." No, my journey will take place within four walls (give or take), and I think I'm more nervous about it than I would be if I were to hit the open road without a road map.

Here's a short review: fabulous. Moriarty captures this perfect balance of humor and tragedy, fate and hope. It's page after page of "What if..." meshed with "If only..." and every choice facing each character was just--impossible. I was uneasy and a ...more

First, I loved the references to all things 80's. As a Dystopian novel, however, I didn't get the idea that the world itself had anything at stake, at least not at the outset. I didn't see Wade as any kind of a savior or heroic figure.

“So how could you ever eat another strawberry and not know that God loves you? I want you to think about that every time you eat a strawberry. Do you hear me?”
Allison Pittman, Lilies in Moonlight

“We live what God wants when He wants us to. He withholds joy for a time, then lavishes it all around. He shelters us from pain until He knows we'll live through it. The point is, what matters is this moment. How precious, precious time is. The past had to happen, and we cannot stop the future. Why, then, should we live with a spirit of fear and regret?”
Allison Pittman, Lilies in Moonlight
