"Of corse, my parents and grandmother were in shok. They thought my sister and I were going absolutley crazy. Bur I thought we were warriors, you know?And a warrior isnt afraid of confrontation." (Alexie,91)
"Because Penelope had publicly declared that I was cute enough to ALMOST date, all of the other girls in school decided that I was cute, too. ...All of the other boys in school decided that I was a major stud. Even the teachers started paying more attention to me. I was mysterious." (Alexi, 110)
"And Rodger, being of kind heart and generous pocket, and a little bit racist, drove me home home that night. And he drove me home plenty of other nights, too. If you let people into your life a little bit, they can be pretty damn amazing." (Alexie, 129)
