Share a favorite quote, line, or passage from your reading each week!

This week’s quote is from my current read, Once in a House on Fire. I picked this one, because what happens next breaks my heart, but also because it’s such a wonderful view of books through a child’s eyes.

She allowed us to pack them into the metal trunk that was to carry our most precious books, toys and ornaments across the sea to Canada. They took up no room at all, considering what was inside them: secret islands, magical circus stuff, whole mountains and rivers, not to mention the Famous Five, the Secret Seven and the adventurous four – the nearest thing to all the real life friends we would have to leave behind, Laurie and I persuaded our mother.

What lines made you laugh, cry, or gasp this week? Do tell!
