Rachel Vincent
“Ethan was loyal and funny and protective. When we were little, he was the brother most likely to make me cry—and mostly likely to wipe away my tears.”
Rachel Vincent, Prey

Catherynne M. Valente
“At the snowy summit of all these things, however, is the fact that you simply cannot go about locking your siblings in towers when they misbehave. It is unseemly and betrays a sad lack of creativity.”
Catherynne M. Valente, In the Night Garden

Nishanth Anchan K.N.
“Fighting with siblings, especially the little ones, has always, and will always be the same. You fight with your hands tied behind your back. You know that you'll lose. But you still fight back, either you want to annoy them or let them feel the extra satisfaction of beating you after a long fight. No matter which of the two ways you take, it clearly shows that you love them. A lot.”
Nishanth Anchan K.N.

“We share a bond. We do everything together. We have a piece of strong, invisible thread connecting us. It’s indestructible – it can never be broken. The thread is the key item that links us together. We understand each other.”
Erica Sehyun Song

“Do we have a hand mirror?' I asked from the kitchen doorway.
'Never use one,' said Lester, examining the date on a carton of sour cream.
'Naturally, you're a male. What you see is what you've got,' I said resentfully.
'Huh?' said Lester.”

Courtney Milan
“That's the way things were; people liked Lily, and while they were busy liking her, Violet got things done.

It never bothered Violet. She liked having things to do, and if her sister hadn't been there, they wouldn't have liked Violet any better. They'd only have ignored her more.”
Courtney Milan, The Countess Conspiracy

Meredith Duran
“If Gerry were dying of thirst and spotted Alex two feet from a well, he still would not think he required his younger brother's help. It simply would never occur to him that Alex might be able to provide it.”
Meredith Duran, Wicked Becomes You

Victoria Alexander
“Leo offered his arm and Cassie took it. Sister and brother strolled aimlessly for a few moments. “Perhaps we have not suffered enough to earn happiness?”

Cassie glanced up at him, relieved to note the teasing twinkle in his eye. “I should be happy to make you suffer with a well-placed kick to your backside if that’s what you wish.”

Leo laughed. “I shall pass if you don’t mind. Besides, I am barely nine-and-twenty and have plenty of time left to enjoy myself before the need truly arises to settle myself with a wife.” He sobered. “You, however—”

“Don’t say it, Leo,” Cassie said firmly. “Or I shall be forced to deliver that kick and a great deal more.”
Victoria Alexander, The Pursuit of Marriage

Darcy Leech
“I knew you’d know,” Mom said in a stabilizing, more confident, yet still husky voice. A smile broke across her face in the simple relief of her only remaining child not being shocked by the death of her youngest. She smiled genuinely, perhaps for the first time since cradling Dustin’s body as the fire truck alarm blared towards the house in response to her 911 call. Her son had died that morning in her arms as she tried resuscitating him with her own breath, but the first indication of her daughter’s reaction was calm. The child raised to expect death met the first moments of the news with seeming serenity.”
Darcy Leech, From My Mother

Rebecca McNutt
“Mandy, I hardly think this was appropriate, not after… you know… after the funeral we haven’t had the money for any of your weird little games and I was hoping you’d be more mature now that Jud’s gone,” her father had disappointedly added. “How much’d that cake cost you?”

“It’s paid for,” Mandy had argued, but her voice had sounded tiny in the harbour wind. “I used the cash from my summer job at Frenchy’s last year and I… it was my birthday, dad!”

“You can’t even be normal about this one thing, can you?” her father had complained.

Mandy hadn’t cried, she’d only stared back knowingly, her voice shaky. “…I’m normal.”
Rebecca McNutt, Shadowed Skies: The Third Smog City Novel

“Did you get Mom a birthday present?' Helen asked.
'Yes,' Gansey replied. 'Myself.'
Helen said, 'The gift that keeps on giving.”
Maggie Stiefvater, The Raven Boys
