TOP 10 (NON SPOILER) QUOTES FROM BORDERLINE

  1. It was mid-morning on a Monday when magic walked into my life wearing a beige Ann Taylor suit and sensible flats.
  1.  Even before she spoke, a dagger of shame centered itself above my gut, and her next words drove it home.
  1. One of the interested patrons, a tanned hunk of beefcake, flexed a bicep at me and then turned abruptly into a lemon tree.
  1.  Months’ if not years’ worth of compressed longings unpacked themselves to fill the empty space. 
  1. The lobby was a recursive crimson purgatory of mirrors; I kept my eyes firmly on the carpet.
  1. Next to its neighbors, this house looked like a cat lady at a PTA meeting.
  1.  There had to be some reason that particular elephant was shuffling unmolested around the room.
  1. Only when Teo looked at me as though I’d grown a nipple on my forehead did I realize what I’d said.
  1. “Your second guess after England is outer space?”
  1. Suicide is not a way of ending pain; it’s just a way of redistributing it.

    I feel like a lot of books are being released with a Hollywood setting! Or maybe there have always been a lot of books and I just failed to notice until now. :/ Either way, I’m excited!
