“There’s freedom in stories, you know. We read them and we become something else. We imagine different lives, and while we turn the pages, we get to live them. To escape the lot we’re given.”
Maggie Tokuda-Hall, The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea

“Yes, she was an orphan, a sister, a pirate, a girl, and also a boy. But more importantly, she was a person who sought power to protect those she loved. Including herself. Or himself. Both were equally true to her. Neither told the whole story.”
Maggie Tokuda-Hall, The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea

“She was not a creature of courage, but she was one of spite.”
Maggie Tokuda-Hall, The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea
