A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
““Love at first sight.” It comes out as hardly more than a whisper, but the quietest words carry in this vast, echoing room. “I’ve always thought real love could only come later. After you both know each other, trust each other. After days, or weeks, or months spent together—learning to understand everything that isn’t spoken out loud.”
Paul smiles, which only makes his eyes look sadder. “One can grow into the other, my lady.” His words are even quieter than mine. “I have known that to be true.”
When we look at each other then, he silently admits something beautiful and dangerous. Does he see the same confession in my eyes?”
I love your depictions of the Dear Evan Hansen characters! Who do you think you'd FC for them? Off the top of my head, I'm thinking Okieriete Onaodowan as Evan and Alice Lee as Zoe.
