“That’s the weirdest thing, by the way. That every person you come across lays down in a bed, under the covers, and closes their eyes at night. Cops, teachers, parents, hot girls, pro ballers, everybody. For some reason it makes people seem so much less real when I look at them.”
Matt de la Pena, We Were Here

“It doesn’t hurt much. I don’t know how it looks” – he lowered his hand and turned his face to the side – “but it can’t be that bad. What do you think? You’d date me, right?”

Alex pushed him away, grinning. “You’re an idiot.”
Al Stone, Talisman of El

“Sometimes when you're surrounded by dirt...you're a better witness for what's beautiful.”
Matt de la Pena, Last Stop on Market Street

“But when you read books you almost feel like you're out there in the world. Like you're going on this adventure right with the main character. At least, that's the way I do it. It's actually not that bad. Even if it is mad nerdy.”
Matt de la Pena, We Were Here

“People always think there’s this huge hundred-foot-high barrier that separates doing good from doing bad. But there’s not. There’s nothing. There’s not even a little anthill. You just take one baby step in any direction and you’re already there. You’ve done something awful. And your life is changed forever.”
Matt de la Pena, We Were Here
