“Olivia,” said my father, ” look me in the eye.”
I did as he asked, raising my chin to bolster my confidence.
He lifted his chin as well. “Why did you humiliate yourself by standing in that crowd of hysterical women? Mr. Underhill said men pelted you with rotten eggs.”
“That is correct, sir.”
“Why we’re you there?”
“A friend’s sister is a member of the Oregon State Equal Suffrage Association, and I decided to see what all the fuss was about.”
“Mr. Underhill said you were chanting with the women.”
“That is correct.”
“Because I would like to vote for president when I’m older.” (ARC, page 37)
I know, I know. Way too long for a teaser. But this is definitely the moment when I confirm this is an awesome protagonist. Even if she wants to avoid this entire dialogue with her father, she doesn’t shy away from speaking her mind.

“You know those tragic stories here two kids from feuding families fall in love? Okay, flip that inside out and turn it on its head and you’ve got our story, Ryder’s and mine.” (1% eARC, Kindle)
“I’m trying not to obsess about the storm too much. I mean, I do have the urge to watch the Weather Channel twenty-four-seven, but that’s pretty normal for me. What can I say? I like watching the Weather Channel. And okay, maybe I have a teeny-tiny crush on Jim Cantore. Doesn’t everyone?”(37%, eARC Kindle)
Ha! I didn’t realize Magnolia was a spin on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, but it’s pretty darn cute! Also, I love that Jemma loves to watch the Weather Channel, because I totally went through a phase like that (and with the cooking channel, lol)
