Amal El-Mohtar
“I love you. I love you. I love you. I'll write it in waves. In skies. In my heart. You'll never see, but you will know. I'll be all the poets, I'll kill them all and take each one's place in turn, and every time love's written in all the strands it will be to you.”
Amal El-Mohtar, This Is How You Lose the Time War

Ashley Herring Blake
“Even girls made of stars are captives, bound at the wrists and traded like property. Even girls made of stars aren't asked, aren't believed, aren't considered worth the effort unless they can offer something in return.
Even girls made of stars buy into those lies sometimes.”
Ashley Herring Blake, Girl Made of Stars

Katrina Leno
“Because there was nothing in a girl’s history that might negate her right to choose what happens to her body.”
Katrina Leno, Summer of Salt

Mary H.K. Choi
“Trying to get better at the thing you want to be the best at is humiliating.”
Mary H.K. Choi, Permanent Record

Courtney Summers
“I stood over her crib and listened to her breathing, watching the rise and fall of her tiny chest. I pressed my palm against it and felt myself through her. She was breathing, alive. And I was too.”
Courtney Summers, Sadie
