"I stayed up late to finish this mystery. I just loved the characters. Lucy and her friend Dyna were plucky, Edith and her friend Mimsy loved plants, gardening, and were feisty "elderly" ladies (maybe 60 years old). And the mystery was puzzling.

“All good writers are weird. Proudly weird.”
Margo Rabb, Kissing in America

“I think sometimes the biggest influence isn't what's present in your life, but what's absent.

Those missing pieces that shape you and change you, the silences that are louder than the noise.”
Margo Rabb, Kissing in America

“Grief isn't like a map you can follow. It's not a simple route with a destination. Sometimes you loop back and find yourself in the exact same place you left.”
Margo Rabb, Kissing in America
