"The air in the room tastes sterile. The lingering scent of bleach is mixing with the fresh white paint on the walls, and I wish my teacher would open the window to let in a breeze. But we're on the third floor so the pane is sealed shut-just in case anyone gets the urge to jump." -The Program by Suzanne Young

"'Just breathe, my mother would say. Ten tiny breaths... Seize them. Feel them. Love them." -Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A Tucker

“Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love. It did not end well.” -Daughter of Smoke and Bone by

What do you think it takes to reinvent yourself as an all-new person, a person who makes sense, who belongs? Do you change your clothes, your hair, your face? Go on, then. Do it. Pierce your ears, trim your bangs, buy a new purse. They will still see past that, see you, the girl who is still too scared, still too smart for her own good, still a beat behind, still, always, wrong. Change all you want; you can't change that." -This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales 

"Late in the winter of my seventeenth year, my mother decided I was depressed, presumably because I rarely left the house, spent quite a lot of time in bed, read the same book over and over, ate infrequently, and devoted quite a bit of my abundant free time thinking about death." -The Fault in Our Stars by John Green 

"They say that just before you die your whole life flashes before your eyes, but that’s not how it happened for me." -Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver 

"The way I figure it, everyone gets a miracle." -Paper Towns by John Green
