"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

         With my wrist still clamped in his grip, he led me to the headmaster's office.  We didn't wait outside like usual.  Still holding on to me, McNulty walked straight past the school secretary in her office and knocked on the head's door, walking in there and then, full of self-importance.  "Headmaster, we've got a serious issue to deal with ehre.  I caught Jem Marsh threatening another pupil with a knife on school grounds."  He placed the knife on the head's desk.

Numbers is a frightening look into a future hard to comprehend.  Only one person can stop what's about to happen, and that's Jem, the gril with the numbers in her eyes.  This is giving me chills, and not just because of the destruction looming in the future, but because of the violence that the high school students perpetuate towards each other.  A very interesting pre-dystopian sci-fi.  I'm really loving it!
