What's Left of Me by Kristen Granata

“Chase smiled a smile that I recognized all too well – the kind of expression people make when they are smiling through the pain. The mouth puts on a show, but the eyes give it all away.”
Kristen Granata, Collision

“Fear traps you inside your own body, holding you prisoner, convincing you of lies that sound like the truth.”
Kristen Granata, Fighting the Odds

“I envy the people who stop eating when they’re stressed. I’m an emotional eater. I eat my feelings, and unfortunately, they aren’t fat free. They taste a lot like Ben and Jerry’s.”
Kristen Granata, Hating the Boss
