My Book Of Life By Angel by Martine Leavitt


Originally published on September 04, 2012

“You look innocent, like a real girl, but you are a monster.”

“Sometimes one bite and everything’s different after that.”

“But one day you break the rules, and you don’t die, and then you think you’ll never die.”

Nothing is something I never was.”

“I figured out that’s what believing does– it’s a shape for words to live in, it’s a pretend meaning for a little while, and if you leave it there long enough it hardens into something true.”

“There has to be the possibility of sad endings or there couldn’t be such a thing as happy endings. Endings are happy because they could have been sad. Maybe ours will be sad.”

Goodreads Synopsis:

When sixteen-year-old Angel meets Call at the mall, he buys her meals and says he loves her, and he gives her some candy that makes her feel like she can fly. Pretty soon she’s addicted to his candy, and she moves in with him. As a favor, he asks her to hook up with a couple of friends of his, and then a couple more. Now Angel is stuck working the streets at Hastings and Main, a notorious spot in Vancouver, Canada, where the girls turn tricks until they disappear without a trace, and the authorities don’t care. But after her friend Serena disappears, and when Call brings home a girl who is even younger and more vulnerable than her to learn the trade, Angel knows that she and the new girl have got to find a way out.
