The first is that I think most teens go through a period where your parents seem so odd that you wonder if its possible you aren't even related to them. The biggest inspiration came from seeing a missing child poster that had an age enhanced photo on it. I turned to a friend and said- wouldn't it be weird if you looked like one of those photos? Then it suddenly hit me that would be a great starting place for a book. (less)

“Personally, I felt pretty safe. Librarians are like priests. You can tell them you want information on just about any subject and they never look at you weird. It's like a rule or something. I figured even in a small town like this, my question wouldn't be the strangest one the librarian had heard. I didn't know if librarians had any sort of official privacy code, but I was counting on confidence. They're not big talkers. It comes from being forced to be quiet all the time.”
Eileen Cook, Unraveling Isobel

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that if you do something embarrassing like fall down the stairs in front of a group of people, you are required to act like you are fine, even if you aren't. Your arm could have a bone jutting out, and you would still try to laugh it off as if everything were hunky dory. This compound fracture? It's nothing! I like to let my bones out of my body once in a while for fresh air. It's good for them.
Eileen Cook, The Education of Hailey Kendrick

“Tell me the truth. When you were a kid, did you always color inside the lines?”
"Coloring in the lines is the whole point. That’s why they have lines,” I said.
“That’s where you’re wrong. The lines are there just to hold you in. Like a prison. Think what you might have created if there hadn’t been any lines.”
Eileen Cook, The Education of Hailey Kendrick
