My favourite quotes from the books I’ve read in the past week.
Maybe someday we’ll see each other again, Charlie. For real, I mean. Until then, save me a seat, okay?
Parents don’t get that though. They don’t understand about the fragility of teen friendships. They don’t understand how easy it is for things to break apart. How someone you thought would be by your side forever can just disappear, or turn on you, or decide she likes someone more than she likes you. Parents always talk about romantic relationships to be so ephemeral and fleeting in high school. What they don’t get is that friendships can be the same way.
