"We Are the Ants it is difficult to describe, not just because the plot itself is difficult to explain--in a totally cool alien way--but the book is actually about so much more than the quirky alien, science-fiction the summary implies.

2:56 p.m. EST: So... It's a TOTALLY freaky coincidence that I began reading this book on January 29, 2016, the day, according to the book, the world is supposed to end. This should be particularly interesting.

“If you work really hard, and you're kind, amazing things will happen.”
Conan O'Brien

Sara Teasdale
There Will Come Soft Rains

There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground,
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;

And frogs in the pool singing at night,
And wild plum-trees in tremulous white;

Robins will wear their feathery fire
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;

And not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it is done.

Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree
If mankind perished utterly;

And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn,
Would scarcely know that we were gone.”
Sara Teasdale, Flame and Shadow

Laini Taylor
“The library knows its own mind... When it steals a boy, we let it keep him.”
Laini Taylor, Strange the Dreamer

Maya Angelou
“We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.”
Maya Angelou

Lemony Snicket
“I don't know if you've ever noticed this, but first impressions are often entirely wrong.”
Lemony Snicket, The Bad Beginning
