It’s Just My Imagination

“What happened in front of my friends felt real. What happened to me by myself felt partly imagined, definitely shifted and warped by my own fears and wants.”

Jealousy and Admiration

“Girls who wouldn’t take risks both loved and hated girls who did.”

Love Through Loss

“And someplace under that, she was sad that people like Bee and Kostos, who had lost everything, were still open to love, and she, who’d lost nothing, was not.”

Boys Will Be Boys

“Granted, Lena was suspicious of many things. But she had earned her suspicions about boys. Lena knew boys: They never looked beyond your looks. They pretended to be your friend to get you to trust them, and as soon as you trusted them, they went in for the grope. They pretended to want to work on a history project or volunteer on your blood drive committee to get your attention. But as soon as they got it through their skulls that you didn’t want to go out with them, they suddenly weren’t interested in timelines or dire blood shortages. Worst of all, on occasion they even went out with one of your best friends to get close to you, and broke that same friend’s heart when the truth came out.”

Of Sound Mind

“Sometimes you tell yourself the things you need to hear.”

Living the Second Life

“He gestured out the front glass of the store to the parking lot. “Most people live out there, “ he said. He pointed to the game. “I live in here.” He tapped the glass of the screen.”

Shoot the Messenger

“She wanted his profession of feelings to do the trick. She really did. She knew he wanted that too. Whether he spoke the truth or not, he thought he could make her feel better, and he really, really wanted to. But it wasn’t what she needed. Her need was as big as the stars, and he was down there on the beach, so quiet she could hardly hear him.”

Are You Happy Now?

“Maybe happiness didn’t have to be about the big, sweeping circumstances, about having everything in your life in place. Maybe it was about stringing together a bunch of small pleasures…Maybe everybody had the same allotted measure of happiness within each day.”
