My friend Zemira loved her from her very first book, but she was always...just good to me. Well, things change! Dear Mrs Fisher, after reading this book, I bow to you!
Where should I start... Margo Moon... Margo the Murderess... She is in my marrow. I adore her and you can call me demented but I would always help her to kill every beast she finds. I approve every act she did or will do.
"I was not born this way. I was not born with the capacity to murder. Life brought it out in me."
"There are monsters in this world. We all know this to be true. They come in all shapes and sizes. From every walk of life. Some smile lovingly as they stare you in the face, while others sneak and come at you from behind. How do you fight a monster? Send in another monster, of course.
Judah Grant is sweety. He is Margo´s neighbour and he is always positive person in depressing neighborhood although he lives with a disability. He is the sense of right that keeps the beast of Margo from madness. He is caring, witty and his friendship pulls her out of her marrow-darkness.
I questioned everything, anything, and all while reading this book. The story is mysterious, dark and complex. Just when you think you know where it is going, she throws in another twist. She pushed all my hard limits and I thank her for that.
Just try reading a few of these quotes and NOT read the book... "Sadness is an emotion you can trust. It is stronger than all of the other emotions. It makes happiness look fickle and untrustworthy. It pervades, lasts longer, and replaces the good feelings with such an eloquent ease you don’t even feel the shift until you are suddenly wrapped in its chains."
"...humans are built to live with pain. Weak people let their pain choke them to a slow, emotional death. Strong people use that pain, Margo. They use it as fuel."
"Children are vastly overlooked. Their importance underestimated by their size."
"Reject me, and I´ll look elsewhere. I´l just cast less and less of my pearls before swine each time"
" I want to implore you not to hurt yourselves.Not to cut your skin, or swallow pills, or drink to drown pain. Not to hand yourselves over so easily to men for validation. Stop feeling useless and worthless. Stop drowning in regret. Stop listening to the persistent voice of your past failures. You were that child once, who Margo would have killed for. Fight for yourselves. You have a right to live, and to live well. You´ll inherit flaws; you´ll develop new ones. And that´s okay. Wear them, own them, use them to survive. Don´t kill others; don´t kill yourselves. Be bold about your right to be loved. And most importantly, don´t be ashamed of where you´ve come from, or the mistakes you´ve made. In blindness, love will exhume you."
