noah shaw quotes

Wait,” I said as Noah slipped a book from a shelf and headed toward the door. “Where are you going?”
“To read?”
But I don’t want you to.
“But I need to go home,” I said, my eyes meeting his. “My parents are going to kill me.”
“Taken care of. You’re at Sophie’s house.”
I loved Sophie.
“So I’m…staying here?”
“Daniel’s covering for you.”
I loved Daniel.
“Where’s Katie?” I asked, trying to sound casual.
“Eliza’s house.” I loved Eliza.
“And your parents?” I asked.
“Some charity thing.”
I loved charity.
“So why are you going to read when I’m right here?

The Mara Dyer Trilogy has been my favorite series for a while now, ever since the second book came out… @michellehodkin has a way of writing characters that resonate with her readers. This page in particular is one I come back to every time I need an extra push. Beautifully written and exquisitely impactful.

My brother cleared his throat. “I wish she knew that I think she is the most hilarious person on Earth. And that whenever she’s not home, I feel like I’m missing my partner in crime.”
My throat tightened. Do not cry. Do not cry.
“I wish she knew that she’s really Mom's favourite–”
I shook my head here.
“–the princess she always wanted. That Mom used to dress her up like a little doll and parade her around like Mara was her greatest achievement. I wish Mara knew that I never minded, because she’s my favourite too.
