#10 Anything goes
I really need to talk about my favourite character in this book. I could write an entire essay about May, but I don’t want to bore you senseless. I’m just incredibly interested in her character, and how she’s shrouded in complete mystery. The writer does a good job with her unreliable narrator, a girl who only sees the good side of her big sister. As the reader, I was inclined to believe that May was the perfect role model, but she was going through her own troubles and possibly battling with depression, but nobody gave her the help that she needed and I just love her character, okay???

#8 Laurel and May - the car ride

She turns to me. Her lips look grown-up, like the ones she cuts out of her magazines for collages, but her face is soft. 
She says, “Do I look okay?” 
I say she looks beautiful. I haven’t ever seen anyone look like that before. Not even her.

#5 Favourite moment - the Corridor Kiss <3

This morning at school, something great happened. I saw Hannah standing with Natalie, getting books out of her locker. Hannah zipped up her bag, and then I watched her lean into Natalie and give her a kiss on the lips. Right there, in front of everyone passing, anyone who wanted to look. She grabbed Natalie’s hand and walked with her down the hall, as they weaved through the soccer boys staring, the science nerds pointing, all of them talking and whispering and saying what they would. Natalie and Hannah were beautiful, both of them, like their own constellation.

#4 Favourite moment - the Balcony Scene

“Okay,” I said. “I’ll tell you a secret.”

I leaned into him and whispered, “I’m a fairy.”

Sky looked at me and raised his eyebrows.

“You don’t believe me, do you?” I said. “Watch, then, I’ll show you.” I got up and climbed onto the low wall at the edge of the balcony. “Close your eyes, and I’m going to fly off of this.”

I ignored the voice in the back of my head that said, Only your sister has wings. It made me mad.

“Laurel, get down from there!” Sky said, from what felt like the distance.

“No. I want to fly. I want to fly like May,” I said.
