Loving the Lines//What the Other Three Don’t Know

I saw that Julie over at One More Book came up with a new post called Loving the Lines.

Basically, Loving the Lines is dedicated to books with stand-out quotes that need to be shared. I’m often moved by passages and lines from the books I read, and I thought this would be a great way to show the love!! Many thanks to all the wonderful writers who inspire, empower, entertain, and make people think. 

As soon as I saw this post I knew I needed to make this a weekly post! Instead of focusing on just one author, I’ve decided to focus on one book that has some really powerful and memorable quotes.

You can read my review of the book here.

I imagined grief lurching after me, grabbing at my ankles, licking its lips and watching me cringe as I focused on the rope in front of my face and how it would disappear over the ledge and leave me alone in the void.

Everyone will give you a different number for how many stages of grief there are, but there is only one way to conquer it, and that’s to run through it, not around it.

That’s how it works. It’s a river that flows right past you. It doesn’t wait for you. You’re lucky if you manage to dip your hand in it and feel the cool currents as it passes.

We were all trying to be multiple things, while thinking we could only be one. One thing. But sometimes you have to let things go to survive, right?

We all had secrets that needed extra hands to carry, lives that needed that river run, darkness that needed light, weight that needed lightness.

About the Book:

Publisher: Shadow Mountain

Published: March 3, 2020

Synopsis:

If Indie had it her way, she would never choose to river raft with three other high school seniors, mostly strangers to each other, from her journalism class.
 
A loner, a jock, an outsider, an Instagram influencer. At first they can’t see anything that they have in common. As the trip unfolds, the unpredictable river forces them to rely on each other. Social masks start to fall as, one-by-one, each teen reveals a deep secret the other three don’t know.
 
One is harboring immense grief and unwilling to forgive after the death of a loved one. One is dealing with a new disability and an uncertain future. One is fearful of the repercussions of coming out. One is hiding behind a carefully curated “perfect” image on Instagram.
 
Before they get to the end of Hells Canyon, they’ll know the truth about each other and, more importantly, learn something new about themselves.
