“Our distance has lived in me like the aftermath of a bad dream-I carry it around, the knowledge that we were once close, that something was lost; it's the lingering sadness of unfinished business. (18)”
Lauren Fox, Friends Like Us

“The person who knew you best when you were seventeen will always have a claim on you, no matter how much you change. There's something seductive and magnetic about it, the feeling of being understood like that. I suppose it goes both ways." (19)”
Lauren Fox

“We all think we're snowflakes, but we're Tinker Toys, held together by our interchangeable parts. (39)”
