Quotes by Kiley Reid  (?)

“I don't need you to be mad that it happened. I need you to be mad that it just like... happens.”
Kiley Reid, Such a Fun Age

“I think it best we went our separate ways, and that those paths never crossed again.”
Kiley Reid, Such a Fun Age

“Emira realized that Briar probably didn't know how to say good-bye because she never had to do it before. But whether she said good-bye or not, Briar was about to become a person who existed without Emira. She'd go to sleepovers with girls she met at school, and she'd have certain words that she'd always forget how to spell. She'd be a person who sometimes said things like, "Seriously?" or "That's so funny" and she'd ask a friend if this was her water or theirs. Briar would say good-bye in yearbook signatures and through heartbroken tears and through emails and over the phone. But she'd never say good-bye to Emira, which made it seem that Emira would never be completely free from her. For the rest of her life and for zero dollars an hour, Emira would always be Briar's sitter.”
