Wow. When I started this audiobook I thought it would be predictable and in some ways it was but this book was so much more. This books captures feelings and struggles both mental and physical regarding quadriplegia.

Maya frustrates me. Daniel frustrates me. Not enough background on Rafe to make me feel the undying trust and loyalty Maya gives him. Sam is my favorite. Follow by Maya's adopted parents, Corey and Kenjii. Haley is also entertaining at times.

Rachel and 491 other people liked Emily May's review of Six of Crows (The Dregs, #1):
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Lauren Oliver
“Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for you there's one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it.

Lauren Oliver, Before I Fall

“The flip side of freedom is this: When you're completely free, you're also completely on your own.”
Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium

Kate Griffin
“When last I checked, you were a sorcerer, not a Jedi."
"You've seen Star Wars?"
"Seen it and denounced it."
"You've denounced Star Wars?"
She looked me straight in the eye and said, "Hollywood should not glorify witches."
"I think you've missed the point..."
"I also denounce Harry Potter."
"...because literature, especially children's literature, should not glorify witches."
"Oda, what do you do for fun?"
She thought about it, then said, without a jot of humor, "I denounce things.”
Kate Griffin, The Midnight Mayor
