Quote 1: “That’s what it felt like when I was growing up, like I was a random fruit in a field of genetically identical potatoes.” (p4)

Quote 2:" The fact was, some things had to die so that others could live, and the idea was to try to maximize your chances of staying on the living side for as long as you could."( p270)

Quote3:" "I've never been able to make them feel safe," I said. "Maybe that's what happens when you run away from home. You get older, but you never grow up." I held out the cigarette to prove my point. "See? I come back to this house, and it's like I'm a teenager again. Smoking. Sneaking out to sleep with Elliot. It's like time just folded and my whole life between then and now never happened" (p240).
