Tahereh Mafi Quote: “Loving Father meant loving all of him – his open windows as well as his dusty corners – and she refused to love him less for secrets unknown. Alice had secrets, too, didn’t she?

Tahereh Mafi Quote: “My heart is flapping wings against my throat.”
Tahereh Mafi Quote: “I felt then, in that moment, the insubstantial weight of my sixteen years in a way I’d never felt before. I had no control here. No power. I didn’t even have my driver’s license. I didn’t have a job, I didn’t have my own bank account. There was nothing I could do. Nothing I could do to help, to make this better. I had no connections in the world, no voice anyone would listen to. I felt at once everything, everything, and nothing at all.”

Tahereh Mafi Quote: “My eyes close in a subconscious effort to block out the bad memories, but the effort backfires. Protests. Rallies. Screams for survival. I see women and children starving to death, homes destroyed and buried in rubble, the countryside a burnt landscape, its only fruit the rotting flesh of casualties. I see dead dead dead red and burgundy and maroon and the richest shade of your mother’s favorite lipstick all smeared into the earth. So much everything all the things dead.”
