“For everything that reminds me of who I am, there's always something reminding me of who I'm not.”
Veera Hiranandani, The Whole Story of Half a Girl

“It feels scary to talk, because once the words are out, you can’t put them back in. But if you write words and they don’t come out the way you want them to, you can erase them and start over.”
Veera Hiranandani, The Night Diary

“Kazi tells me stories about you once in a while. I hardly ask him to tell me about you, though, because I’m afraid that the stories might run out. I want to save them, like a treat.”
Veera Hiranandani, The Night Diary
