Quotes from the Book

…for Nina, whenever reality, or the grimmer side of reality, threatened to invade, she always turned to a book. Books had been her solace when she was sad, her friends when she was lonely. They had mended her heart when it was broken, and encouraged her to hope when she was down.” (pg. 40)

    • I understand! Despite those aspects, though, I thought it was a good book and thought that the theme of stepping out of our comfort zones was something that resonates with many.
