“Wait -- you kissed a girl you didn't like, tried to make me jealous, and almost got kicked out of school -- and you still didn't learn how to dance?' She looked at the ceiling. 'Why are boys so stupid?”
Varian Johnson, The Great Greene Heist
tags: boys, humor

“Just because he doesn't want to hear it doesn't mean you shouldn't say it.”
Varian Johnson, Saving Maddie

“Madeline, I know we can be a little conservative-'

'Conservative? How about down right mean?' She pointed at me, hard and angry. 'You people are quick to ask forgiveness, but won't think twice about condemning others for the same mistakes.' She shook her head. 'If I was God, I'd be pretty damn ashamed of how fucked up church has gotten.”
Varian Johnson, Saving Maddie
