Scout returns to Maycomb to find that things--even her beloved father, Atticus--aren't quite what she remembers of them. It's a wonderful successor to To Kill a Mockingbird and a great look at some wonderful characters as they have aged!

“John’s old Caddie had a huge engine that would qualify as a human rights violation if built today. It roared down the road, chugging gas and farting a blue cloud of dinosaur souls.”
David Wong, This Book Is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don’t Touch It

David Wong
“The English language needs a word for that feeling you get when you badly need help, but there is no one you can call because you're not popular enough to have friends, not rich enough to have employees, and not powerful enough to have lackeys. It is a very distinct cocktail of impotence, loneliness and a sudden stark assessment of your non-worth to society? Enturdment?”

“English should have a word for that feeling you get when you first wake up in a strange room and have no freaking idea where you are.
Hotezzlement?

“I don’t know how they catch the birds. I know the Goliath Fucking Bird-Eating Spider can’t fly because if it could, it would have a different name entirely. We would call it “sir” because it would be the dominant species on the planet. None of us would leave the house unless a Goliath Fucking Flying Bird-Eating Spider said it was okay.”

Guy Deutscher
“Franz Delitzsch, who put it most memorably when he wrote in 1878 that “we see in essence not with two eyes but with three: with the two eyes of the body and with the eye of the mind that is behind them. And it is in this eye of the mind in which the cultural-historical progressive development of the color sense takes place.”
