"Addie dreams of telling Luc these things, just to see the shade it turns his eyes, the green of being bested. The green of forfeit, and of losing. But if he’s taught her anything, it’s patience. So Addie says nothing of the new game, the new rules, the new battle that’s begun. She only smiles, and sets the book back on its shelf." - VE Schwab, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue
hindsight coming of age in the streets of la sheryl recinos
Hindsight: Coming of Age on the Streets of Hollywood by Sheryl Recinos is a deeply upsetting first-hand account of Recinos’ time homeless in Hollywood, CA and the events that led her there. Recinos’ straight-forward style of telling you her story with almost no hindsight clears the way for the reader to put themselves in her shoes. What could you have done differently? What outcomes would you been unable to change? When you read her story, you may end up asking yourself: Can you change the outcome for someone else?
