“First love can break you. But it can also save you.”
Katie Khan, Hold Back The Stars

“The thing about first love, Cari, is that it breaks you. It changes everything about who you are for the next person.”
Katie Khan, Hold Back the Stars

“She won’t love again in the same unbridled way; she’ll never feel the sharp brightness of her own personality when he gazes upon her, when he draws a spotlight over her and she responds, fully illuminated.”
Katie Khan, Hold Back The Stars
