Or if there was a civil war or a superflu or a zombie apocalypse and nobody remembered to tell me, because nobody remembers I’m here. On those nights, I would think about my mom. She’d call me. She’d tell me. She’d remember. And a wave of comfort would wash over me.
But now, she’s gone. And I’m lying in bed, listening to the night air and wondering: Who’s going to remember me now?
You, I want to respond. I need you.
But I don’t. I’ve lived twenty-seven years without him. I can live twenty-seven more.
While this book was a little sad at times, I love how these characters bonded over books.
