So put me in your books so you know what it’s like to live a life not knowing what a normal life’s like. Put a label on my head so you know what it’s like to live a life not knowing what a normal life’s like. Look into my eyes so you know what it’s like. Look into my eyes so you know what it’s like. Look into my eyes so you know what it’s like to live a life not knowing what a normal life’s like.

"So check this out. Grace and I are getting coffee at Ronnie’s this morning, and we walk in, and who do we see sitting there alone at a table? Marcus. So we’re talking to him and we’re catching up and he’s telling us about his new job at the aquarium and how much he takes home in tips and how he’s gonna start applying for classes next semester and it’s weird ‘cause I’m like, I have not heard Marcus talk this much ever since I met him…And that’s when I notice there’s another cappuccino on the table and an empty chair next to him. And then, just like in the fucking movies, the bathroom door flings open and out walks Liza Green! It was so fucking cute I almost pissed my pants."

"So, two weeks before she turns 18 and leaves, we get this new intake. This 15-year-old guy, he’s really tough, really quiet, but he’s cool, he’s just kind of like kicking back and checking out the scene. And I swear I didn’t hear him say a word the whole first week he was here. But then one day, we’re doing a community meeting, and we ask for announcements, and this guy raises his hand. And he looks directly at Liza Green and he says, ‘I know you don’t know me and I just got here, but I just wanna say that I’ve been watching you and I think you’re the most interesting thing about this place. And I’m really sad I’m not going to get to know you before you leave. I just wanted to tell you that.’"
