Needless to say, considering that I literally gave her the Darkest Minds last week, I'm a teensy bit on the pissed side that she got the sequel before me. She finished TDM last night, and I must say, her reactions were pretty freaking hilarious considering I've been wallowing in the same pain since the book came out. Welcome to the dark side, Allie ;). Now you know I felt for the past year, except I had to keep it bottled up. Here are her frantic messages to me at ten pm last night, though they're under the break because of SPOILERS and swearing.

Her: NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO
Her: SICK BITCH WHAT IT IS THIS?
Her: WHERE'S THE LAST PAGE THAT SAYS IT WAS JUST A PRANK AND LIAM'S COMING BACK?!
Her: WTF
Her: WORST. ENDING. EVER
Her: CHUBS! LIAM! ZU! RUBY!
Her: Somehow in the last 100 pages she made things worse for them than they already were
Her: WHY ON EARTH DID YOU GIVE ME THIS?!?!?
Her: WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU??!! YOU RIPED MY HEART OUT!!!!!
Her: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Her: .... I really loved the book though <3
Her: FEELS
Her: I'm buying Never Fade. Right now. Omg. That ending was pure evil.
Her: I THOUGHT YOU WERE MY FRIEND WHY DID YOU LET ME SUFFER AT THE HANDS OF A HARDCOVER?!?!? WAS THAT REALLY NECCESARY?!!?
Her: I got to go, Never Fade just downloaded on my nook, byeeee

This morning...
Me: Listen here, missy
Me: I got that f*cking book when it first came out, and I've waited too f*cking long for the god-f*cking-damned sequel. So if you spoil on little f*cking thing from the f*cking book, I will f*cking end you. Are we f*cking clear?

But I get the last laugh, because I get it in actual book form. Hee hee.

Look, so pretty:

I wish I could've seen his face as he spoke, because I think he knew- he must have- that this threat, the crimp in our supposedly glorious future, had nothing to do with the kids that had died. Buried underground or burned into ash, they couldn't do anything but haunt the memories of the people who had loved them. They were gone. Forever.
And that symptoms list, the one that was sent home folded and stapled by teachers, which was aired a hundred time over on the news as the faces of the dead scrolled along the bottom of the screen? They were never scared of the kids who might die, or the empty spaces they would leave behind.
They were afraid of us- the ones who lived.
