“What had been so funny? But you can never remember what you were laughing about, and even if you could, it seems doubtful that it would still be funny.”
Rufi Thorpe, The Girls from Corona del Mar

“It wasn't that Lorrie Ann was becoming a Goody Two-shoes. It wasn't that she wanted to be perfect or loved or approved of. No. She wanted something much more dangerous. She wanted meaning. And she thought it could be gotten by following the rules.”
