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 Casquette Girls
Alys Arden
November 15, 2015

      The familiar tunes made my desire to be home grow more and more intense.  I cranked the window handle, letting the humidity roll in, along with the unexplainable presence---the je ne ais quoi of the city.  The muggy air hit my face, making me smile with nervous anticipation as I watched the cypress trees go by.  They had once been tall enough to hide the swampy marshes, but now they were mostly snapped in half like twigs.  (pg. 13-14)

I was lucky enough to win this book from Goodreads Firsts and it really intrigues me.  It's set right after the destruction of New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina and the rebuilding of the city.  But with the storm other things are awaken and descend upon the returning citizens of the once lively city.  Adele, the main character, is wrapped up in the mystery and I can't wait to find out what happens!  A very think book, but it seems pretty fast-paced so far.  If you've read it already, let me know what you thought in the comments!
