Never Say Never by Justine Manzano
"Never Say Never was the perfect YA read. It fits well into the contemporary genre but brings a unique voice and ideas to the table. Aphrodite inserting herself into a group of teens is such a fun idea and the drama that ensues is just perfect. Brynn " Read more of this review »

“It's more fun to embrace the crazy.”
Kristin Jacques, Zombies vs Aliens

“It wasn't easy, I told you I ran around in circles for hours screaming my head off, but hey, why live in denial? It's more fun to embrace the crazy.”
Kristin Jacques, Zombies vs Aliens

“The trouble with writing a book about yourself is that you can’t fool around. If you write about someone else, you can stretch the truth from here to Finland. If you write about yourself the slightest deviation makes you realize instantly that there may be honor among thieves, but you are just a dirty liar.”
Groucho Marx

“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. I mean everybody. All of the people in the whole world, I mean everybody — no matter how dull and boring they are on the outside. Inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds... Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands, maybe.”
Neil Gaiman, A Game of You

“If cats looked like frogs we'd realize what nasty, cruel little bastards they are. Style. That's what people remember.”
Terry Pratchett, Lords and Ladies

“Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one.”
Terry Pratchett

“It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing it.”
Terry Pratchett
