Favorite Quotes

"A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation. Lend and borrow to the maximum -- of both books and money! But especially books, for books represent infinitely more than money. A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold."

— Henry Miller

She's got a secret


Title: Breathless
By: Jessica Warman

Katie Kitrell is a swimming prodigy with a secret. Katie’s parents send her to Woodsdale Academy so that she can escape the trouble her brother Will’s growing mental illness has caused her family. But instead of being honest with her new friends, she tells them her brother is dead. For Katie, it’s easier to lie and pretend to move on than to admit that her brother is sick. At Woodsdale, she becomes very close to her roommate Mazzie, who’s hiding secrets of her own, and begins dating Drew, a fellow swimmer. In the back of her mind, Katie is always aware that someone at school could find out the truth about her brother. She’s convinced that the truth could ruin the new life she’s created for herself. If it ever does come out, Katie will have to decide if her loyalties lie with her brother, or with her new friends.

Breathless is a story about the lengths someone will go to protect their family, and about how no matter how hard you try, you can never truly get away from your past.
