Acknowledgments and Accolades (2)

Acknowledgments and Accolades is a new weekly post in which I share my favorite quotes from blurbs or acknowledgments for the week. I have an unusual obsession with the way large emotions like gratitude and admiration can be expressed in such succinct prose, so I always read the blurbs and acknowledgments sections first.

Here are my favorite finds for this week:

The Life of Glass by Jillian Cantor

The hardest tests of adolescence don’t come in English, algrebra, or biology. They come in those defining moments when we are asked to know ourselves and to follow our true hearts…”–Beth Kephart
