“I felt sort of sad that I couldn’t remember the last time, before tonight, that I’d paid such close attention to the sky. It felt like that must be some kind of sign that I’d lost my innocence and grown up without even realizing it.”
Tara Altebrando, The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life

“I knew guys got erections.
I was perfectly prepared to deal with it. When the right guy and the right erection came along.”
Tara Altebrando, The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life

“People who were gone only lived on in your memory if you had memories. Why hadn't she held on tighter?”
Tara Altebrando, The Leaving
