I probably won't get paid for another two weeks, I mean, that's how Subway was. And I definitely won't last that long. Plus I'm low on dog food. It's one thing for me to go hungry, but I won't let Captain starve.
~ Not After Everything by Michelle Levy, Kindle Location 550 (ARC)
I know you shouldn't say nasty things about the dead, but since she never had the chance to become something, it's unfair that everyone assumes that if she had, it would have been bright and shiny. At six Jeanie was one of those dull pennies forgotten on the sidewalk that everyone steps over but no one stoops to pick up; she wouldn't have been a diamond at seventeen.
~ The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy, Kindle Location 47 (ARC)
The family calls us four the Liars, and probably we deserve it. We are all nearly the same age, and we all have birthdays in the fall. Most years on the island, we've been in trouble.
~ We Were Liars by E. Lockhart, pg. 7
Lily was in trouble. Terrible trouble. Kelsea stared at the asymmetrical pattern of stones on the floor, her mind racing, moving from point to point. Lily had called, and Kelsea had heard her. In the span of history, Lily Mayhew's life meant nothing; she was not even a footnote. Whatever was happening to her, she was long dead and buried now, but Kelsea couldn't turn away. Yet she didn't know how to reach Lily. They were separated by three centuries, and endless gulf. Kelsea had always thought of time as a solid wall behind her, blocking out everything that had already passed...but the world she now inhabited was greater than that.
