Book Quote: Destroy Me – Tahereh Mafi

I’m gearing up to read Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi, and for some reason I never read Destroy Me when it first came out…not sure why.  So after waiting for 2 weeks – I finally got the novella via my library’s downloadable section.  Here’s a short segment that just rings truth of today:

“We followed the tale laid out for us, the prose pinned down in every square foot of space we’d acquired.  We were content with the plot twists that only mildly redirected our lives.  We signed on the dotted line for the things we didn’t know we cared about.  We ate the things we shouldn’t, spent money when we couldn’t, lost sight of the Earth we had to inhabit and wasted wasted wasted everything.  Food.  Water.  Resources.”

Destroy Me, Pg 50 – Tahereh Mafi
