Favorite Quote:
Girls are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. The boys don't want to reach for the good ones because they're afraid that they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think that something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right boy to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

The author's comments:
I wrote this out of my anger at the cancer that my best friend's boyfriend has. Because Seth only was given a 25% chance of beating it i got angry and confused and upset. I turned at God with my anger but found my release in praying and writing. If any of you have ever felt the way I feel, then this is for you...
