Sometimes, in books and in life, it’s not about the romance. Sometimes, it’s about the girl. – The Girl Who Was on Fire, Leah Wilson

Love is stronger than anything, even death. – The Sky is Everywhere, Jandy Nelson

Grief is forever. It doesn’t go away; it becomes part of you, step for step, breath for breath. I will never stop grieving because I will never stop loving her. That’s just how it is. Grief and love are conjoined, you don’t get one without the other. All I can do is love her, and love the world, emulate her by living with daring and spirit and joy. – The Sky is Everywhere, Jandy Nelson

Something became clear: Life’s a freaking mess… there’s not one truth ever, just a whole bunch of stories, all going on at once, in our heads, in our hearts, all getting in the way of each other. It’s a beautiful calamitous mess. – The Sky is Everywhere, Jandy Nelson

You can tell your story any way you damn well please. It’s your solo. – The Sky is Everywhere, Jandy Nelson
