I was nominated by The Bibliophile Blogs to do the 3 Days, 3 Quotes tag, so thank you again for that! I’m still breaking the rules by doing this three consecutive Tuesdays, but that’s okay! This is Day 2!
1. Thank the person who nominated you. (Done!)
2. Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote per day). (To be done!)
3. Nominate three new bloggers each day. (Done!)
I’m pulling this quote from the book I just reviewed yesterday, The Photograph by Kristen Otte.
“I never lost my feet, just a little focus.” — Rachel Brandt
“Rachel Brandt has spent the first sixteen years of her life in the dark about her mother.
All she knows is that her mother disappeared when her father was killed in action in the Gulf War a few months after she was born. But when Rachel stumbles across a photograph of her mother, she realizes she doesn’t want to be in the dark anymore. Against her grandparents’ wishes, Rachel begins a search for her mother.
While she searches for the truth about her mother, Rachel is trying to make a name for herself on the basketball court in her first varsity season. But the search causes Rachel to question everything she knows about herself and her family. Can she handle the pressure on the basketball court when she learns the life she knows is a lie?
The Photograph is a realistic fiction novel for teens with elements of mystery and romance behind the backdrop of the basketball season. The Photograph is a great book for teen girls who love sports.”
I don’t know, I just really liked this quote. For some context, Rachel hadn’t been playing well in basketball, but made a comeback and her coach commented that he was glad that she found her feet again. The reply she gave (which is the quote) was pretty inspirational and I wanted to share it with you all.
