"You can tell a book is real when your heart beats faster. Real books make you sweat. Cry, if no one is looking. Real books help you make sense of your crazy life. Real books tell it true, don't hold back, and make you stronger. But m ost of all, real books give you hope. Because it's not always going ot be like this and books - the good ones, the real ones - show you how to make it better. Now."
-Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak
