Book cover for Internment
Muslims have been in America since the first slaves were brought here. Can you even imagine what they went through to hold on to Islam? What they endured?”
Misty Griffin
“Some things you must always be unable to bear. Some things you must never stop refusing to bear. Injustice and outrage and dishonor and shame. No matter how young you are or how old you have got. Not for kudos and not for cash: your picture in the paper nor money in the back either. Just refuse to bear them. —William Faulkner, Intruder in the Dust”
Misty Griffin, Tears of the Silenced

Joe Newman
“If James didn’t sit down within five seconds of being told, the consequence shifted to two minutes. If the behaviorist had to physically bring him to the time out spot, the consequences shifted to five minutes. If James wouldn’t sit quietly on his own and needed to be held, the behaviorist held him firmly and silently until James had stopped struggling and was quiet and then he required James to sit quietly for five minutes while he held him loosely and five minutes quietly on his own.”
Joe Newman, Raising Lions

Margaret Atwood
“Aunt Vidala said that best friends led to whispering and plotting and keeping secrets, and plotting and secrets led to disobedience to God, and disobedience led to rebellion, and girls who were rebellious became women who were rebellious, and a rebellious woman was even worse than a rebellious man because rebellious men became traitors, but rebellious women became adulteresses.”
Margaret Atwood, The Testaments

Mira Grant
“No offense, hon, but you flirt like it’s a form of espionage and you’ll be executed if you get caught.”
Mira Grant, Into the Drowning Deep

“Reluctantly, painfully, he detaches his tattered mind from the hard hook-pins of word and meter. He rolls away from his madness and strokes the purring, winding cat.”
Siobhan Carroll, For He Can Creep
