"I reached for his hand , then hesitated as I remembered that face. The one with the brown eyes. The boy with the hands that fit mine just right. I'm not sure how, but I knew if I went with Cole, I'd never see that face again. The boy with that face was not an Everliving.
He was a human, and he was on the Surface. Where I'd left him. I knew it like I knew I needed air to live.
"No," I said. I pushed away from him and stood up on my own. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I knew I had another choice. "I'm going home."
"I closed my eyes and pictured the boy with the brown hair, and as I took in my first really deep breath of Surface air, a name to math the face came to me. A name I'd been trying to cling to for a century."
What am I liking about this book? I like that the story starts by the end of the story and then we have to work our way back to see why the main character did what she did and how was her life in the past while still moving on in the future. It's pretty awesome, and the boy with the brown hair? He seems so dreamy!
