To keep up with this month's pride month reads, today's quote is from the wonderful Cinderella Boy by Kristina Meister. I loved this book so much. It's heart-felt, sweet, tender and has a fantastically passionate human rights protest coursing through it. It's releasing on the 2nd July, so look out for it!
Here's the synopsis for Cinderella Boy by Kristina Meister:
Being perfect isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Sixteen-year-old Declan is the perfect son . . . except for one tiny issue. When his sister Delia comes home to find him trying on her clothes, he fears her judgment, but she only fears his fashion choices. One quick makeover later, Declan is transformed into Delia’s mysterious cousin Layla and dragged to the party of the year, hosted by Carter, the most popular boy in school.
When Carter meets Layla, he fumbles to charm her. He adores her sense of humor and her poise. But when she vanishes in the middle of the night, he’s left confused and determined to solve the mystery of who she is.
As their school year begins, their high school embraces a policy of intolerance, and both Declan and Carter know they must stand up. Carter is tired of being a coward and wants to prove he can be a knight in shining armor. Declan is sick of being bullied and wants desperately to be himself. If they team up, it could be a fairy-tale ending, or a very unhappy ever after.
Here's my chosen quote from 56%, it's a bit longer than usual:
"It surprised me that she treated is so casually, like, 'Here's this thing I've never told anyone, and it's like crucial to my identity. Here you go!' So I stood there, wondering, like angry even, that she's be so nonchalant about it. Then I realized..."
