This read like a YA book, which I wasn't expecting, but was still a good read. If you think things in this country are messed up today, this is a good reminder that 100 years ago things were at least as bad.

I liked the way she has Alleyn giving a lecture about this case and cutting back and forth in time.

“Resentment is like swallowing a poison and waiting for the other person to die.”
Michael Robotham, Life or Death

Matthew Dicks
“You have to be the bravest person in the world to go out every day, being yourself when no one likes who you are.”
Matthew Dicks, Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend

Amor Towles
“For his part, the Count had opted for the life of the purposefully unrushed. Not only was he disinclined to race toward some appointed hour - disdaining even to wear a watch - he took the greatest satisfaction when assuring a friend that a worldly matter could wait in favor of a leisurely lunch or stroll along the embankment. After all, did not wine improve with age? Was it not the passage of years that gave a piece of furniture its delightful patina? When all was said and done, the endeavors that most modern men saw as urgent (such as appointments with bankers and the catching of trains), probably could have waited, while those they deemed frivolous (such as cups of tea and friendly chats) had deserved their immediate attention.”
Amor Towles, A Gentleman in Moscow

George Saunders
“Only then (nearly out the door, so to speak) did I realize how unspeakably beautiful all of this was, how precisely engineered for our pleasure, and saw that I was on the bring of squandering a wondrous gift, the gift of being allowed, every day, to wander this vast sensual paradise, this grand marketplace lovingly stocked with every sublime thing.”
George Saunders, Lincoln in the Bardo

Tom Rob Smith
“...Except when I was alone. I'd hate myself. It's how we feel about ourselves when we're alone that must guide our decisions.”
Tom Rob Smith, The Farm
