The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
"More later, maybe, but in brief: This one lives up to the hype. This could have ended up as treacly and manipulative as an after-school special, but Thomas tells this timely story of racism, riots, and finding your voice with unexpected nuance. Th..." Read more of this review »
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
"I loved this book, and the fierce narrator who chooses to take personal and private risks to help build the world she'd like to see, while also holding the complexity of having to code-switch between where she lives and where she goes to school. S..." Read more of this review »

Brian  Doyle
“Everyone thinks that the old days were better, or that they were harder, and the modern times are chaotic and complex, or easier all around, but I think people's hearts have always been the same, happy and sad, and that hasn't changed at all. It's just the shapes of lives that change, not the lives themselves.”
Brian Doyle, Mink River

Gretel Ehrlich
“The toughness I was learning was not a martyred doggedness, a dumb heroism, but the art of accommodation. I thought: to be tough is to be fragile; to be tender is to be truly fierce.”
Gretel Ehrlich, The Solace of Open Spaces

Sara Nović
“Their musings about how and why people stayed in a country under such terrible conditions were what I hated most. I knew it was ignorance, not insight that prompted these questions. they asked because they hadn't smelled the air raid smoke or the scent of singed flesh on their own balconies; they couldn't fathom that such a dangerous place could still harbor all the feelings of home.”
Sara Nović, Girl at War

Pam Houston
“For a long time I thought the object of the game was identifying the question, love versus freedom, Mandela vs Buthelezi, leave or stay forever ghosted under a thick curtain of oil. Nora said, Maybe a choice isn't the right way to think of it, by which she might have meant, A question loses its power when there is only one answer, as in, yes to Bhutan and Barstow. Yes to chanterelles and portobellos. A temple. Yes. A mosque. Yes. The changeable heart of a child.”
Pam Houston, Contents May Have Shifted

Pam Houston
“If I die tonight it will be with every single thing unfinished (like, I suppose, any other night), and yet, what a gift to die on the verge of tears. I have spent my life trying to understand the way this rock and this ache go together, why a granite peak is more dramatic half dressed in clouds...,why sunlight under fog is better than the sum of its parts, why my best days and my worst days are always the same days, why (often) leaving seems like the only solution to the predicament of loving (each other) the world.”
Pam Houston, Contents May Have Shifted
