"A sad story could be like a gentle scritch behind the ears. It told him that he was not alone."

So so so enjoyed this book.
Danielle and 1 other person liked Mary Lowd's review of Voyage of the Dogs:
Voyage of the Dogs by Greg Van Eekhout
"This is a perfect book.

Addendum a few hours later: I miss reading this book... It was totally absorbing, and if I'd read it when I was twelve, it would have unquestionably been my favorite book."
Danielle and 1 other person liked Stephanie's review of Voyage of the Dogs:
Voyage of the Dogs by Greg Van Eekhout
"This is a fabulous concept for an MG adventure novel – dogs in space! Companion-dogs forced to rescue themselves when their humans go missing! – and it’s carried off SO well.

I actually know Greg, so I already knew that he had dogs of his own, but..." Read more of this review »

“I told Dad about yesterday...I told him how I made all those mistakes.
'But you kept on playing?' Dad said. His eyes got wide when he said it. I could tell he was proud.
'Everybody does,' I said. 'You can't just get up and walk away every time you mess up. You'd never get anywhere.”
Linda Urban, A Crooked Kind of Perfect

Rebecca Stead
“Mom says each of us has a veil between ourselves and the rest of the world, like a bride wears on her wedding day, except this kind of veil is invisible. We walk around happily with these invisible veils hanging down over our faces. The world is kind of blurry, and we like it that way. But sometimes our veils are pushed away for a few moments, like there's a wind blowing it from our faces. And when the veil lifts, we can see the world as it really is, just for those few seconds before it settles down again. We see all the beauty, and cruelty, and sadness, and love. But mostly we are happy not to. Some people learn to lift the veil themselves. Then they don't have to depend on the wind anymore.”
Rebecca Stead, When You Reach Me

Hannah Barnaby
“She was careful with her apple tree. She did not ask too much of it.”
