Amal El-Mohtar
“It's amazing how much blue there is in the world if you look. You're different colors of flame. Bismuth burns blue, and cerium, germanium, and arsenic. See? I pour you into things.”
Amal El-Mohtar, This Is How You Lose the Time War

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

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

Christina Lauren
“A God worthy of your eternal love wouldn’t judge you for who you love while you’re here.”
Christina Lauren, Autoboyography

Holly Black
“Fairy tales are full of girls who wait, who endure, who suffer. Good girls. Obedient girls. Girls who crush nettles until their hands bleed. Girls who haul water for witches. Girls who wander through deserts or sleep in ashes or make homes for transformed brothers in the woods. Girls without hands, without eyes, without the power of speech, without any power at all. But then a prince rides up and sees the girl and finds her beautiful. Beautiful, not despite her suffering, but because of it.”
Holly Black, The Lost Sisters
