Gram Crackers - Grace Brisbane and Sam Roth
Wolves of Mercy Falls

“She loved all the wolves behind her house, but she loved one of them most of all.
And this one loved her back. He loved her back so hard that even the things that weren’t special about her became special: the way she tapped her pencil on her teeth, the off-key songs she sang in the shower, how when she kissed him he knew it meant for ever.
Hers was a memory made up of snapshots: being dragged through the snow by a pack of wolves, first kiss tasting of oranges, saying goodbye behind a cracked windshield.
A life made up of promises of what could be: the possibilities contained in a stack of college applications, the thrill of sleeping under a strange roof, the future that lay in Sam’s smile.
It was a life I didn’t want to leave behind.
It was a life I didn’t want to forget.
I wasn’t done with it yet. There was so much more to say.”

― Maggie Stiefvater, Linger

themusicourcollisionsmake  asked:

I read the bulk of Sinner in a day but had to stop several times to calm my heart. My brother was an addict and his choices have tormented nearly 20 years of my life (I am only 27). He and Cole share so many of the same qualities. It was difficult to read this magnified version of him. Painful and scary. What an untidy character: loud, selfish, charming... Cole was very well written and I was really impressed by how you handled his drug addiction and the effect it had, as well as Isabel's role.

Dear themusicourcollisionsmake,

This means a lot. 

This letter was tucked inside every advanced copy that went out:

A lot of readers think this is a novel about addiction; it’s really a novel about living beside someone with addiction. I said it was the truest novel I’d ever written, and I genuinely hope the optimism inside its pages is as true as the dark chapters. 

I hope you find a way to find peace with your werewolf brother, or apart from him. It’s harder to be a human, but, as I’m sure you already know, humans are where the happy endings are at.
