So far I’m really enjoying Andrew Smith’s Grasshopper Jungle…
phrases like “i’ll be the distraction you go on ahead without me” generally do not have a tendency to end well
"i’ll catch up with you" no. no you probably won’t
"we’ll talk about this later" there is no later
"it’ll be alright" not for you since you just said that and doomed yourself
She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.
No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion.

I’m a big fan of these “Last Lines” graphics that are going around, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon.
I’m sure there are plenty of other much better Rainbow Rowell versions, but here’s my contribution.
Yes, some of them have more than one sentence, so they’re not technically the last linE, and also I took out some “he saids” to make it look pretty.
I <3 Rainbow Rowell just a wee bit.
I’m also now super paranoid that these aren’t in fact the last lines at all. I did check my books so I’m pretty sure I’m right.
YASMIN(E) (I never know for sure how to spell your name, haha). I love love LOVE these. THERE’S NO AIR IN SPACE. BE HERE NOW. I want to hug this post. (And these are CRYING OUT to be bookmarks, if you ask me.)
