5 Amazing Sentences from YA Novels

Written by Grant Goodman, 12/16/2014

I was recently given the link to Buzzfeed’s 51 of the Most Beautiful Sentences in Literature. It’s a wonderful collection. I thought that YA novels deserve the same treatment. So over the next few months, as a recurring feature, I’ll be collecting and sharing my picks for Amazing Sentences in YA.

1.  I feel such a tenderness for these vulnerable night-time conversations, the way the words take a different shape in the air when there’s no light in the room.

David Levithan, Every Day

2. Moonlight can reveal the truth of things.

-Joseph Delaney, The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch

3. Life is short, but it’s wide.

-Wendy Mass, Every Soul a Star

4. The world was collapsing, and the only thing that really mattered to me was that she was still alive.

-Rick Riordan, The Last Olympian

5. There was a hand in the darkness, and it held a knife.

-Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book
