I quit here because I'm done with the narrator being slooooooow on the uptake. I get that she's supposed to be young and figuring stuff out and maybe she's doing that at the right pace for other readers, but not me.

"The problem with a quantum universe, neither random nor determined, is that we who are the intervention don't know what we are doing."

"My guide turned and held out his right spade. 'My name's Friday,' he said. 'What's yours?'

"I said, 'Billie Crusoe.'"

I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE, WINTERSON. Also I almost cried a lot quite a few times in the past I'm not sure how many pages because ebook. Dang. I'm a keep reading, you're weaving a glorious tapestry of words and my heartstrings, but whew. I'm also going to need a unicorn chaser.

"Every second the Universe divides into possibilities and most of those possibilities never happen. It is not a uni-verse—there is more than one reading. The story won't stop, can't stop, it goes on telling itself, waiting for an intervention that changes what will happen next.

"Love is an intervention."

We're getting Winterson now, kids, and I am here for it.

'Stories are always true,' said Handsome. 'It's the facts that mislead.'

Tracy is 22% done with Girl Mans Up
I think maybe she could be my girlfriend. I don't want to be her girlfriend, though. But there's this part of me that totally knows I could be her boyfriend. I don't want her to think of me as a boy, or a boy substitute, though. I want to be a boyfriend who is a girl. I have no idea how to explain that stuff to anyone, let alone a girl I like.

It switched to the bear's perspective. Huh.

“Well,” said the bear, “there’s nothing wrong with nearly getting killed. Actually getting killed: now that would be annoying. But nearly getting killed is fine. I do it all the time and it’s never done me any harm.”

I have no memory of putting this book on hold but I got NYPL email about it, and am pretty charmed.

"From the context clues, I understood 'microaggressions' to mean 'little bullshit acts of racism.'"

"I was on the back of a vintage Harley, riding down the middle of a street I didn't know with a beautiful biker librarian. I was free of self-doubt."

"Maybe America just swallowed all of us, including our histories, and spat out whatever it wanted us to remember in the form of something flashy, cinematic, and full of catchy songs."

"I was a beast in the library. Libraries are safe but also exciting. Libraries are where nerds like me go to refuel. They are safe-havens where the polluted noise of the outside world, with all the bullies and bro-dudes and anti-feminist rhetoric, is shut out. Libraries have zero tolerance for bullshit. Their walls protect us and keep us safe from all the bastards that have never read a book for fun." (<3 eyes emoji)

This chapter is literally titled "Ain't No Party like an Octavia Butler Writer's Workshop." Can it possibly live up to the name?

"In other news, a recent report suggests that things may not be as they seem. The report explains that things are definitely what they are, but never what they seem."

"Please know that our station exists because of donors like you. It also exists because a long and terribly improbable series of galactic events over the course of billions of years conspired to bring us to this very moment in our station's existence. And we thank you gift you're support. Again, we apologize for the delay in receiving your items, and also for the absurdity of time."
