Last week I got to see Stephanie Perkins, Gayle Forman, and Nina LaCour at Roosevelt High School in Seattle for the YA or Bust Tour’s last stop. These women are smart, funny, and so who I wish I could be! Stephanie has always been so delightful to me as I’ve followed her on Twitter, and she did not disappoint in person. Next week I’ll share a Forman quote (I’ve already shared a LaCour quote from The Disenchantments for a Memorable Monday).
So for this Memorable Monday (hosted by Escape in a Book), I’m including a quote from Perkins’ Lola and the Boy Next Door, her second book and companion novel to her debut, Anna and the French Kiss. I liked Lola a smidge better than Anna, although I adore the strong detail and characterization in both novels.
“I know you aren’t perfect. But it’s a person’s imperfections that make them perfect for someone else.”
So true, right!? I love it.
And yet another great illustration from Simini Blocker (of Cricket Bell). 🙂
