I feel so serene after reading this book, it was perfect and adorable and I wished it would go on and on forever, I just… awww…. beautiful


All this time I had been trying to figureout the secrets of the universe, thesecrets of my own body, of my ownheart. All of the answers had alwaysbeen so close and yet I had alwaysfought them without even knowing it.From the minute I’d met Dante, I hadfallen in love with him. I just didn’t letmyself know it, think it, feel it.We all fight our own private wars.As Dante and I lay on our backs in thebed of my pickup and gazed out at thesummer stars, I was free. Imagine that.Aristotle Mendoza, a free man. I wasn’tafraid anymore.I took Dante’s hand and held it.How could I have ever been ashamedof loving Dante Quintana?

All this time I had been trying to figure
out the secrets of the universe, the
secrets of my own body, of my own
heart. All of the answers had always
been so close and yet I had always
fought them without even knowing it.
From the minute I’d met Dante, I had
fallen in love with him. I just didn’t let
myself know it, think it, feel it.
We all fight our own private wars.
As Dante and I lay on our backs in the
bed of my pickup and gazed out at the
summer stars, I was free. Imagine that.
Aristotle Mendoza, a free man. I wasn’t
afraid anymore.
I took Dante’s hand and held it.
How could I have ever been ashamed
of loving Dante Quintana?

“I got to thinking that poems were like people. Some people you got right off the bat. Some people you just didn’t get—and never would get.”

I grew up going to school and high school and then shooting a movie for a few months. It’s an odd way to grow up and is kind of forced maturity.

That’s why I like you. Do you realize how rare it is to come across a hot girl who creates a adjectival version of the word pedophile? You are so busy being you that you have no idea how utterly unprecedented you are.
