“Let me have my tax money go for my protection and not for my prosecution. Let my tax money go for the protection of me. Protect my home, protect my streets, protect my car, protect my life, protect my property...worry about becoming a human being and not about how you can prevent others from enjoying their lives because of your own inability to adjust to life.”
Harvey Milk

I love how poetic Ellen Hopkins can be, and how she provides several viewpoints of the characters and situations. This book really shows the thinking processes, the motives, and the healing between three "disturbed" teens.

“The reason why the universe is eternal is that it does not live for itself; it gives life to others as it transforms.”

“They love without measure those whom they will soon hate without reason.”

Lao Tzu
“Love

Embracing Tao, you become embraced.
Supple, breathing gently, you become reborn.
Clearing your vision, you become clear.
Nurturing your beloved, you become impartial.
Opening your heart, you become accepted.
Accepting the World, you embrace Tao.
Bearing and nurturing,
Creating but not owning,
Giving without demanding,
Controlling without authority,
This is love.”
Lao Tzu, The Teachings of Lao-Tzu: The Tao-Te Ching
