❝ Before. Yes, there was that word again. Rose did not like that word anymore. It implied both that everything good was well past and that nothing more of value was to come. She had had interests once, dreams even, but all of those were before–Before she was sick, before she had ever heard the word “leukemia”, before the sum of her existence had turned into a revolving door of monotonous boredom interspersed with periods of crippling pain–Before her whole life had simply stopped.❞
❝ Koren felt like she had been hijacked by her childhood pastimes and made into a living Barbie doll. Her time was never her own any longer. It seemed like there was always someone around to tell her where to be, what to wear, what and when to eat, when to sleep, and when to wake up and do it all over again.❞
