Jeff Lemire
“Sometimes at night, when I wake up real late, I can hear my dad talking to God. He whispers, but I still hear him.
I even hear him crying sometimes, when God says something sad.”
Jeff Lemire, Sweet Tooth, Vol. 1: Out of the Deep Woods

Edith Wharton
“My little old dog
a heart-beat
at my feet”
Edith Wharton

R.J. Palacio
“I eat like a tortoise eats, if you've ever seen a tortoise eating. Like some prehistoric swamp thing.”
R.J. Palacio, Wonder

Trish Doller
“I don't know if my life will ever be completely normal again, but something like normal is a good start.”
Trish Doller, Something like Normal

Neal Shusterman
“I wrote Unwind for lots of reasons, and it poses questions about a
lot of subjects. To state it briefly, I wanted to point out how when people
take intractable positions on an issue, and stick to extreme sides,
sometimes the result is a compromise that is worse than either extreme. I
meant it as a wake up call to society -- and to point out that sometimes the
problem IS that we take sides on an issue, when a different sort of approach
is needed. It's also to pose questions about what it means to be alive.
Where does life begin, where does it end -- and point out that there is no
single answer to these questions. The problem is people who think there are
simple answers. People who see things as simple black-and-white
right-and-wrong are the type of people who will end up with a world like the
world in Unwind.”
Neal Shusterman
