“We called our mothers by their first names only in their absence. We were still good girls then, but even if we'd been brave enough to try, we wouldn't have known what to rebel against.”
Danielle Lazarin, Back Talk

“Claire sensed that her mother wanted all the ugliness of her daughter's growing up over with, as though the pain she was sure to experience was best to happen quickly. Claire wanted these years before adulthood, ugly as they might be, to take their time. She wanted her mother to be wrong.”
Danielle Lazarin, Back Talk

“There's something about me at that age that is trustworthy, that makes men think I will not judge them, though I do, all the time; I just keep it to myself. I am not beautiful, but I am pretty enough. That year, and for years after, I hold on to the pretty parts, to the appearance of being open. If only I had allowed myself to look mean in those photos.”
Danielle Lazarin, Back Talk
