scene from the book:
Some girls will require a lot more from you than most guys are willing to give.
This is the girl you’ll need a lot of patience for, because she will lead you down blind paths and up steep hills. The challenge will be staying true to who you are while pursuing this person.
She’ll wring you out, simultaneously repel and attract you and question your every intention. She’ll be the biggest pain in the asphalt you’ve ever had.
She’ll need you to understand what she won’t tell you, believe in her when she extends no faith in you, and not give in to her when she wants to roll over you. She’ll expect that you’ll always be there, even when she avoids you. She’ll want lots of independence but want you to need her desperately. She’ll expect you to be smart but treat her like she’s smarter than you.
Hopefully, you’ll believe she’s worth it in the end. - Layney Logan
