Sure enough, it was an application to work at Paradise Ice Cream. It had been filled out for me in Sloane’s handwriting. There was Sloane’s email and phone number, but my name and work experience. Sloane had put herself down as my emergency contact, and under Additional Info, she had added, I am a really hard worker, a wonderful friend, really punctual, funny, loyal, thoughtful, all-around awesome. Oh, and humble too. — Chapter 3: 55 S. Ave. Ask for Mona, page 97

It wasn’t the worst idea in the world. I needed a job, after all. And Sloane had gotten me one. She had put this on the list, after all, so that I’d know about this job even after she’d left. — Chapter 3: 55 S. Ave. Ask for Mona, page 98

It was much easier to volunteer to do the brave thing, and much harder to actually have to follow through with it. — Chapter 6: Kiss A Stranger, page 217

But you can’t help who you fall for. The heart wants what it wants. — Chapter 9: Break Something, page 311

I watched his taillights until they got more and more distant and then faded from view entirely. I realized, in that moment, that I hadn’t needed to destroy Bryan’s sunglasses in the Paradise parking lot. Because it was clear to me now that I’d already broken something. — Chapter 9: Break Something, page 316-317

And Somewhere to Wear It, page 359
