You remember too much,

my mother said to me recently.

Why hold onto all that?

And I said,

Where do I put it down?

Some of these don’t need to be “re-imagined” to be YA, but we love the covers!

A message from Anonymous


I've succumb to a sentimental hour, or a better way of putting it, my heart seems to be pumping a pink dawn of blood through me. Love is comprised of so many things, but in the hours when it feels and exists simply, the body feels more limber, the conscience refreshed. And it isn't even necessary to say anything! One shouldn't say anything. But give that immanent shout, what a funny thing it is to live, and I'm alive!

     “I was diagnosed with cancer when I was 24, and I had to have surgeries and radiation. It was a challenge, but a challenge I’m grateful for now because it changed my relationships and everything about who I am. It made me more honest and open.”     “In what ways did you become more honest?”     “I can say exactly what I want and what I need: ‘I don’t want this or I want this.’ Before, I would put everyone else first and forget that I even had needs. Now that I put myself forward, it makes my relationships better because I am a better version of myself. Because of this change, I’ve found the great love of my life—the most honest relationship I’ve ever had. I was no longer searching for something unrealistic but something real. In return, I found someone who is my best friend and won’t put up with my bullshit and instead will tell me who I am. And I can hear it now.      “I think being faced with something so traumatic as cancer as a young person changes your ability to open yourself up to hear reality and not be angry or defensive. That’s why I feel lucky and blessed to have had cancer, as odd as that may seem. I feel that I grew exponentially from that experience—very, very quickly.  Most women in the cancer support group were at least 20 or 30 years older than me, and they were shocked by my grasp of some things. They would tell me, ‘I didn’t understand this until I was 50.’”
