The best part of this wacky collection of comics was marveling at Beaton's eccentric, endless creativity. It's not just silly stuff- it's super smart reflection on literature, and history, and pop culture. I got especially huge kicks out of "Hipsters...more

Flora and her temporarily blind new friend William Spiver are tweens that will turn into John Green characters, and readers of this book are definitely college bound (if they weren't already). Holy baguma, ACT vocab! Quirky, quality literature with g...more

I read this in January 2010 also and I love it even more now. It's the OPRF freshman summer read- complex, quirky, challenging, lovely.

Paulo Coelho
“Sometimes, there's just no way to hold back the river.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Will Schwalbe
“That's one of the things books do. They help us talk. But they also give us something we can all talk about when we don't want to talk about ourselves.”
Will Schwalbe, The End of Your Life Book Club

Michele Stephenson
“One important aspect of black children's learning is that they tend to be significantly more sensitive to whether their teacher likes and believes in them than white children are.”
Michele Stephenson, Promises Kept: Raising Black Boys to Succeed in School and in Life

Matthew Quick
“These people we call Mom and Dad, they bring us into the world and then they don't follow through with what we need, or provide any answers at all really--it's a fend-for-yourself free-for-all in the end, and I'm just not cut out for that sort of living.”
Matthew Quick, Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock

Will Schwalbe
“Everyone doesn't have to do everything... People forget you can also express yourself by what you choose to admire and support. I've had so much pleasure from beautiful and challenging things created by other people, things I could never made or do. I wouldn't trade that for anything.”
Will Schwalbe, The End of Your Life Book Club
