Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader - not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon.

—E. L. Doctorow (via maxkirin)

(via the-masked-writer)

Children’s and YA books are about being brave and kind, about learning wisdom and love, about that journey into and through maturity that we all keep starting, and starting again, no matter how old we get. I think that’s why so many adults read YA: we’re never done coming of age.
