So it’s sort of, like, a book inspired by my childhood reading and the passion that I felt about reading when I was a kid.  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) There’s this trouble with books for me because I’m terrible at thinking of titles.

It’s a time a lot of kids feel like they don’t even have one good friend.  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) I asked myself what it was that I wanted from writing and where my connection with books began, and the answer to that question was definitely in childhood, because that’s where my connection with reading began.  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) I have nothing like a writing routine. I sometimes have trouble buckling down to write at home.  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) I felt vulnerable and very much between friends. I remember walking down the hallway and thinking I had no way of knowing what was coming, literally. This wasn’t because I had some horrific bullying story, but because of a steady drip of negativity.  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) I’ve met seven homeschooling families through many, many extracurricular activities such as fencing. I don’t have a point of view of homeschooling. For some families, homeschooling works.  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) Every published writer suffers through that first draft because most of the time, that’s a disappointment.  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) Many of the books on my list are, in my opinion, amazing. Some I didn’t like. But I give them all five stars, because stars make people - including me -- happy.  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) My kids really like food, and they like to cook, so it’s a lot of fun to shop with them  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) We’re allowed as adults to create a life that we like. Kids don’t have that freedom.  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) There was a boy in my building who was my best friend when I was growing up. There was also a mysterious person on my corner who we called the Laughing Man.  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) In so many ways, being a literary agent is an irresistible job to me. Not only does it involve all the things I love - being an advocate for others, problem solving, and going to meetings - yes, that’s true, I love meetings, though everyone says it’s bizarre! - but most importantly, I love working with people whose writing excites me.  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) Beautiful and fresh, Girl Saves Boy is full of the absolute truth-life is complicated.

So don’t worry, okay?  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) Sometimes you never feel meaner than the moment you stop being mean. It’s like how turning on a light makes you realize how dark the room had gotten. And the way you usually act, the things you would have normally done, are like these ghosts that everyone can see but pretends not to  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) Trying to forget really doesn’t work. In fact, it’s pretty much the same as remembering. But I tried to forget anyway, and to ignore the fact that I was remembering you all the time  (Rebecca Stead Quotes) Einstein says common sense is just habit of thought.
