that book was so good.
it's written by melven burgess.
he based it on actual people
but it's not necessarily all true.
anyway, this is my favorite part of it.
"remember when you were little and they used to say "naughty girl, naughty boy" because you broke something or said the wrong thing? they told you, "you are a bad person." but it wasn't like that, it was just you were doing a bad thing. it wasn't you who was bad. you're beautiful. you're wonderful and everything that you do is wonderful and because it's you doing it. you're that strong. you can do bad and know its bad or can do good and know its good but it doesnt do anything to you. you're still you. listen. you can be anything you want to be. be careful. it's a spell. it's magic. listen to the words. you can be anything, you can do anything, you can be anything, you can do anything. listen to the magic. you are anything... everyone, anyone. whatever you want."
