Friday's Finest (38)

Friday's Finest is a meme hosted by Justine from A Bookful of Thoughts.

~Post a quote that really stuck to you after reading it in a book.
~Make sure it isn't a spoiler!
~If you'd like, expand on what you think it means and why you chose it.

I haven’t read enough books lately, so this quote will be an old favourite from one of the best books of 2010. There are poems of Lennie’s scattered throughout the book and they were definitely some of my favourite parts. Also, this book is amazing.

Book: The Sky is Everywhere
by Jandy Nelson

There were once two sisters
who were not afriad of the dark
because the dark was full of the other's voice
across the room,
because even when the night was thick
and starless
they walked home together from the river
seeing who could last the longest
without turning on her flashlight,
not afraid
because sometimes in the pitch of night
they'd lie on their backs
in the middle of the path
and look up until the stars came back
and when they did,
they'd reach their arms up to touch them
and did.

Le sigh. So, so lovely. I bought myself a copy of this book (finally) and I’m so glad I can now reread it whenever I want :)

Have a great Friday!
