The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik by David  Arnold
"This book kinda sideswiped me with its ambition, daring, and brilliance. The weirdo concept sounded too good to be true, but Arnold takes his wild idea and GOES FOR IT, balls to the wall, and spits you out the other side like, "wtf just happened?..." Read more of this review »

Loved this book so much--sad, haunting, funny, beautiful and such a sparkling voice. There were so many stunningly beautiful observations and an almost Technicolor feel to the whole book. A stunning new talent--highly recommend.

“Other people don't exist just to be your happy ending, you know?”
Kelly Loy Gilbert, Picture Us in the Light

“It's hard not to lose your foothold when someone peers inside you, sees all those things you tried the hardest to keep hidden, all those ugly shames you've tried to tell yourself aren't really as bad as they seem. All those lies disintegrate in the light.”
Kelly Loy Gilbert, Picture Us in the Light

“Because if you're tangled up in someone else, if your futures are tied that way, if that's real and if you know when it happens - then it means you know who you belong to, and you know whose fates are tied to yours, whether you like it or planned it or not, whether they still exist in the same world with you or they don't, and I think that's where everything begins and ends. I think that's everything.”
