“She hit him in the best way, like a rainstorm after five years of drought, healing the parched earth with a gentle touch; and in the worst way,like an unexpected earthquake,leaving dust and debris in her wake. She was, in equal parts, a gift and a natural disaster. Her name was Juniper Jones.”
Daven McQueen, The Invincible Summer of Juniper Jones

“Problem is, colored kids don't get to be innocent. It's like you come out of the womb full grown, the way the world treats you.”
Daven McQueen, The Invincible Summer of Juniper Jones

“The moon was right above their heads, seeming to offer them a smile. Juniper sighed. They closed their eyes and breathed as stardust fell from the black satin night sky and settled on their cheeks.”
Daven McQueen, The Invincible Summer of Juniper Jones
