Susane Colasanti has posted the official synopsis of her next book, Keep Holding On.
If any of you have not read a book by Susane before, this is definitely going to be one that you’ll want to check out, as it was inspired by a very personal and serious subject that she dealt with herself: bullying.
“And I said, ‘Oh, uh, you’re single?’ and she said ‘Yeah’ and I said ‘Does that mean I can pursue you now?’ and she said ‘Yes’ and then I walked across the room and, uh, kissed her. And we were together forever then after.”—John Green, on courting his wife, The Yeti (via hippiereborn)
“No man who bothers about originality will ever be original. Whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.”—C. S. Lewis (via cxart)
“There is a story, always ahead of you. Barely existing. Only gradually do you attach yourself to it and feel it. You discover the carapace that will contain and test your character. You find in this way the path of your life.”—Michael Ondaatje, The Cat’s Table (via sometimesagreatnotion)
“People come, people go – they’ll drift in and out of your life, almost like characters in a favorite book. When you finally close the cover, the characters have told their story and you start up again with another book, complete with new characters and adventures. Then you find yourself focusing on the new ones, not the ones from the past.”—~Nicolas Sparks (The Rescue)
