Of course I make my other comment and then see this post 10 seconds later.

Still, for Zevin, you enjoyed a lot of the quotes that really struck me, not to mention the long-running and very real-feeling never-quite-fully-realized relationship between Sam and Sadie, which felt like such an unusual story to tell.

The other thing that really kind of struck me is just that there seemed to be so much wisdom in a book from a relatively young author. She's probably my age (ish), and I just feel like there's so much I grow into and understand with every new experience I have, and she just already had so much of it internalized and with such good perspective/humility.
