Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I open a paperclip and scratch it across the inside of my left wrist. Pitiful. If a suicide attempt is a cry for help, then what is this. A whimper, a peep? I draw little window cracks of blood, etching line after line until it stops hurting.”

Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Having a friend made everything else suck less.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I breathe in slowly. Food is life. I exhale, take another breath. Food is life. And that’s the problem. When you’re alive, people can hurt you. It’s easier to crawl into a bone cage or a snowdrift of confusion. It’s easier to lock everybody out. But it’s a lie.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Memory cuts both ways; it can either provide you with tremendous strength and a foundation to carry you through your life, or it can be a demon that just ruins your present and your future because you can’t let go of the past.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I was good at digging holes. It was the rest of life I sucked at.”

Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I am almost a real girl the entire drive home. I went to a diner. I drank hot chocolate and ate french fries. Talked to a guy for a while. Laughed a couple of times. A little like ice-skating for the first time, wobbly, but I did it.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Because I am still a little girl who believes in Santa and the tooth fairy and you.”

Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Everybody told me to be a man. Nobody told me how.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “The best time to talk to ghosts is just before the sun comes up.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “You’re not dead, but you’re not alive, either. You’re a wintergirl, Lia-Lia, caught in between the worlds. You’re a ghost with a beat- ing heart. Soon you’ll cross the border and be with me. I’m so stoked. I miss you wicked.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “She looks like a china doll, observed Grandfather as we departed. I will break just as easily, I muttered.”

Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Homework is not an option. My bed is sending out serious nap rays. I can’t help myself. The fluffy pillows and warm comforter are more powerful than I am. I have no choice but to snuggle under the covers.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “We fall into clans: Jocks, Country Clubbers, Idiot Savants, Cheerleaders, Human Waste, Eurotrash, Future Fascists of America, Big Hair Chix, the Marthas, Suffering Artists, Thespians, Goths, Shredders. I am clanless.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Eating was hard. Breathing was hard. Living was hardest.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I look at my homely sketch. It doesn’t need anything. Even through the river in my eyes I can see that. It isn’t perfect and that makes it just right.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Used to be that my whole body was my canvas-hot cuts licking my ribs, ladder rungs climbing my arms, thick milkweed stalks shooting up my thighs...”
