Place

"The whole Tuscon valley lay in front of us, resting in its cradle of moutains. The sloped desert plain that lay in between and the city was like a palm stretcheod out for a fortune teller to read, with mounds and milocks, its life lines and heart lines of dry stream beds."

 

-Taylor Greer pg. 216

 

Character

"I've been meaning to tell you," I said, "I think Esperanza's a beautiful name. Estevan told me it means to wait, and also to hope. That in Spanish the same word means both things. But I thought it was pretty even before I knew it mean anything.

It reminded me of, I don't know, a waterfall or something."

 

-Taylor Greer to Esperanza pg. 199

 

Metaphor

 

"There was hardly any moon that night, but gradually our elyes were able to take in more and more detail. The flowers themselves were not spiny but made of some nearly transplant material that as though it would shrivel and bruise if you touch it. The petals stood out in starry rays and in the center of each flower there was complicated construction of silvery threads shaped like pair of cupped hands catching the moonlight. A fairy boat, ready to be launched into the darknes."

 

-Taylor Greer pg. 249

 

Quote of the Novel

 

"It's like this," I told Turtle. "There's a whole invisible system for helping out the plant that you'd never guess was there." I loved this idea. "it's just the same as with people. The way Edna has Virgie, and Virgie has Edna, and Sandi has Kid Central Station, and everybody has Mattie. And on and on."

 

-Taylor Greer pg. 305
