“She couldn’t get any farther away inside from her skin. She couldn’t get away.”

“Rebellion is necessary for development of character.”
Cynthia Voigt

“But I'll tell you something else, too. Something I've learned, the hard way. I guess"—Gram laughed a little—"I'm the kind of person who has to learn things the hard way. You've got to hold on. Hold on to people. They can get away from you. It's not always going to be fun, but if you don't—hold on—then you lose them.”
Cynthia Voigt
