Quote-Tastic is a weekly Monday meme hosted by Herding Cats and Burning Soup. Open your books (or turn on your devices) and pick your book’s quotable quote.

FallingCover“You like it?” It takes me a minute or two to follow what Cass is talking about, but I eventually realize she caught me staring at her anklet.
“Yeah, sorry. I was just looking at the beads. They’re beautiful,” I say, hoping that Cass’s mind isn’t mulling over the idea that I might have a foot fetish or something.
“Thanks. My mom owns a bead store, so I make a ton of things like this. I could make you one, if you want?”
to her, the gesture is probably small and insignificant. But I smile and nod at her offer, and my stomach flutters a little with excitement, first-date kind of butterflies. Somehow, I may have done the impossible. Somehow, I proved myself wrong. Somehow.. I made a friend.

–  Rowe Stanton to Cass
Chapter 1, This is Falling

 

This is an excerpt from Ginger Scott’s up coming novel, This is Falling, which will be released  August 29. Review of this book to come. I love this part because Rowe, the speaker,  tries very hard to get past her sad experience. She has suffered from a very bad trauma.  I love how she keeps she keeps holding on to hope, despite the times she seems to take a step back. But for every step backward, she tries to take two steps forward. She tries her very best to make friends, find love and life her life again.

I also love how this quote shows that small gestures, no matter how insignificant it may seem, can make a lot of difference to the person who needs it.

  1. I completely agree about how the seemingly small things are sometimes the ones with the most impact especially to the person who needs it the most. Great quote, Lorn-Lorn! 🙂
