Protecting the Dam

"It's easier to floss with barbed wire than admit you like someone in middle school."

--Laurie Halse Anderson--I was privileged to meet Anderson at a literature conference... she writes young adult novels and is a truly gifted author. If you have middle schoolers or have worked with young adults who are 10-14 you will know that she nailed this quote.
Great lines and POV! I can relate to the quote very well. I can still remember what that age was like. =)
