The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
"Wow. Just wow. All the words, all the stars. Can something be inside you, a truth, and can it be just numb and dormant until you read a story that waters those truths? And that truth, that reality, that perspective you’ve fought to rationalize...i..." Read more of this review »

This character burrowed right into my heart so thoroughly and the setting couldn’t have been more delicious. I loved this story

“The problem with learning the truth about things is that you lose the confidence that comes from being dumb.”
D.B.C. Pierre, Vernon God Little

“It takes forty muscles to frown, and only twelve to jam a cupcake in your mouth and get over it.”
Sarah Ockler, Bittersweet

Tom Robbins
“What bothers me today is the lack of, well, I guess you'd call it authentic experience. So much is a sham. So much is artificial, synthetic, watered-down, and standardized. You know, less than half a century ago there were sixty-three varieties of lettuce in California alone. Today, there are four. And they are not the four best lettuces, either; not the most tasty or nutritious. They are the hybrid lettuces with built-in shelf life, the ones that have a safe, clean, consistent look in the supermarket. It's that way with so many things. We're even standardizing people, their goals, their ideas. The sham is everywhere.”
Tom Robbins, Jitterbug Perfume

John Connolly
“I think the act of reading imbues the reader with a sensitivity toward the outside world that people who don't read can sometimes lack. I know it seems like a contradiction in terms; after all reading is such a solitary, internalizing act that it appears to represent a disengagement from day-to-day life. But reading, and particularly the reading of fiction, encourages us to view the world in new and challenging ways...It allows us to inhabit the consciousness of another which is a precursor to empathy, and empathy is, for me, one of the marks of a decent human being.”
John Connolly, The Book of Lost Things
