'"I have to say, Middleton, I didn't think you'd have it in you."Kick-ass action, magic and romance combine to form an addictive tale that will have readers on the edge of their seats.
He's looking me over, and I know what he meant was that I don't look the part. I'm too frail. Too small.
"Maybe you shouldn't think then," I retort.'
'"You're being absurd," I tell myself, shaking my head. But even with admitting this, I still manage to brush my hair out and braid it from one side of my head to the other, giving it some form of cuteness.This is an important message - a message that tells its female audience that the person the guy should get to know/date/fall in love with, should be you - the natural you. The you without the constant primping. The you whose voice doesn't go several octaves higher when you talk to him.
I could be a stereotype. I could fall into the trap of trying too hard. I could be someone other than myself for him.
And I don't like it.
I undo my braid and run my fingers through my hair, straightening it back out. I want to look as plain as possible. I need to.'
"Denial is as brittle as glass. It’s solid until a force you never saw coming crashes into it and shatters the thin wall you’ve constructed to protect yourself from the truth."
