"We have problems, but we're so lucky, too. That's the mortal coil. It's the whole thing, all of it, and it's easy to hate that mess in yourself, fight it, hate those who seem to cause it. But, whoever we sit next to in school is the same and whatever jerk you read about on ESPN is the same and whoever honks their horn at you at the intersection is the same. They struggle. Do you know what I mean? They suffer, too. We aren't alone. [...] We can act. Maybe not fix everything. But we can make it better for those others and that makes it better for us. I see it. I've seen it. Good comes back around."

Felton made me cry three times in the final installment in what may be one of the best YA series out there. I saw what happened to him coming, and it tore me up because I just like this character so damn much.

Longer review to come -- really, the quote up there says it all.
