Quote on eating disorders: And i said to my body. softly. 'I want to be your friend.' It took a long breath. And replied 'I have been waiting my whole life for this.' -Nayyirah Waheed. www.HealthyPlace.com
I think this quote relates to the novel because it shows how death and growing up before you die is a central idea in the book. It shows the idea that life is unfair to people, like with all the discrimination, but people can also die and be mature.
