Favorite Lines / Scenes:
“You won‘t kiss me,” I say, pounding on his chest for emphasis. “You promise. Promise you won‘t kiss me.”
His mouth goes up to that same smile, half mischief, no teeth, crinkling his face into something almost happy, something not so sad. “I cannot promise that, but I will promise that I will not kiss you unless you want me to.”
“…I want you to want me because you want me, not because of grief, not because he is not here. I want you to love me for me. I want you to kiss me first and not because you need me to help you, but because you need to kiss me.”
