Quote of the Day

Toby would have loved living in a hotel—had he been allowed to slide down the banisters, sleep in a different bed every night, and hang around in the kitchen waiting to lick out the cake bowl. But of course he wasn’t allowed to do any of those things.

Quote of the Day – The Best at It

Quote of the Day

I look around the room. Boys, boys, boys everywhere. Boys with perfect smiles. Boys with hair gelled up into flawless little spikes. Boys waving headshots in each other’s faces. None of them looks anywhere near as nervous as I feel.

Quote of the Day – Liar & Spy

Quote of the Day

Once, Mom came home from work and discovered that he had turned all the books around so that the bindings were against the wall and the pages faced out. He said it was calming not to have all those words floating around and “creating static.” Mom made him turn them back. She said it was too hard to find a book when she couldn’t read the titles.
