Words of wisdom: Perfect Fifths

“Everything matters so much when you’re 16. A whispered secret is an opera. A one word text is epic. A dirty look is drama, drama, draaaaamaaaa. Every minute of every day is so intense in a way that fades with time. I knew for sure that I had gotten really fucking old when thinking about all those vitally important issues from my sophomore year only made me embarrassed for my former self.” (Perfect Fifths)

Megan McCafferty pretty much sums up my entire teenage experience in those words.

I think I can safely say that I officially count myself a grownup. And I’m glad.

    I haven’t gotten around to reading this book yet, even though I own all of the others. If the rest of the book is like this, I think I need to go pick it up!

    I’ve never heard of this book – but that excerpt sure sparks my curiosity. I was a bit confused by the title cos i immediately thought huhh a perfect fifth interval?!! Music freak, i’m afraid. But i’m going to google this book now!

      Yep, that’s what the title means! And it’s the final in the series, so you know, happy ending, perfect fifths.
