“In the end, there were two Camden Armstrongs. One I watched for a whole summer of relentless craving. The other was the one I fell in love with.”
"All this was unconfirmed, of course. But I knew two things about Camden Armstrong for sure:
1) His eyes were the exact same forest green as the diving board.
2) I ached for him in places I never knew could ache, like earlobes and collarbones."
"I know what it is to want something so badly, you feel like your cells aren’t properly bonded together without it. At any moment you might just crumble apart."
"I never liked the word attraction. It’s way too much about magnets, and not enough about why someone’s mere presence can make you feel pleasure and pain at the same time.
Crush didn’t work either. I wasn’t twelve.
What should I have called it? I just called it Camden."
"Maybe safety lay in actually pursuing the things you desired. Maybe the real danger was not pursuing them and never knowing what would have happened if you did.
Maybe regret was the thing that really knocks you off balance into whatever’s waiting below."
