Quotable Quotations (5)

Quotable Quotations (5)

This weeks quote I picked out of Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson which I read a couple of weeks ago.  I really love the descriptions in this quote and so without further ado:

"This girl shivers and crawls under the covers with all her clothes on and falls into an overdue library book, a faerie story with rats and marrow and burning curses.  The sentences build a fire around her, a Times New Roman 10-point barricade, to keep the thorny voices in her head from getting too close." ~ Laurie Halse Anderson, Wintergirls

Thats it for this week, have a great week.
