“What keeps you going isn't some fine destination but just the road you're on, and the fact that you know how to drive. You keep your eyes open, you see this damned-to-hell world you got born into, and you ask yourself, 'What life can I live that will let me breathe in & out and love somebody or something and not run off screaming into the woods?”
“What happens if your choice is misguided?' I ask, softly. Miss Moore takes a pear from the bowl and offers us the grapes to devour. 'You must try to correct it.' 'But what if it’s too late? What if you can’t?' There's a sad sympathy in Miss Moore's catlike eyes as she regards my painting again. She paints the thinnest sliver of shadow along the bottom of the apple, bringing it fully to life. 'Then you must find a way to live with it.”

Current Wild Thing Challenges:
50 State Challenge
This group is for mature, grown up discussions of all books included under the term 'Young Adults'. Everyone who appreciates YA books are welcome to this group with one rule: You must be of a mature disposition!
We want to be an open-minded group who welcomes everyone. But there have to be some rules of conduct. I would ask everyone to read the group rules before participating to this group.
Here, we hope to have fun, we hope to celebrate these books and read them amongst friends and like-minded people.
So, whether you're young, old, or in between I hope we can all have fun....more
