“I’m trying to hold back my emotions, but I can feel my face contorting. That strange heat moving to my cheeks. I always thought it was magic moving through me, but now I know it to be rage.”
Kim Liggett, The Grace Year

“THEY SAY THE FIRST STEP is the hardest. But it’s really the third—when you’re too far in to turn back and not far enough to completely commit.”
Kim Liggett, Blood and Salt

“When you fall in love, you will carve out your heart and throw it into the deepest ocean. You will be all in - blood and salt.”
Kim Liggett, Blood and Salt
