quotes Elisquared likes

"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

The Wishing Spell
by Chris Colfer
Publication Date: July 17, 2012

         Alex sat up and looked around her room and finally found what was making the noise. It was coming from inside The Land of Stories on her nightstand and, to her amazement, the pages were unmistakably glowing.
(Pg. 61)

I have been waiting for this book to come out since I heard of it!  I really adore Chris Colfer, as an actor and as an activist.  Now I can adore him as an author as well!  The Wishing Spell is an amazing debut book; it is funny, action-packed, relatable for kids, and really twists the traditions of fairy tales.  Very well-crafted, this is a middle-grade that people shouldn't miss!
