"You have no idea how fast thing can change. You have no idea how suddenly years can pass and lives can end. Ignorance is not bliss. Bliss is knowing the full meaning of what you have been given."
David Levithan is a well-known name in YA fiction and he has written numerous contemporary classics including books he’s co-authored with other popular YA writers such as John Green (Will Grayson, Will Grayson) and Rachel Cohn (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, Noah and Ely’s No Kiss List and others). Eminently quotable and frequently writing stories which feature queer protagonists, Levithan, like Green, is a voice of the Tumblr generation whose quotes often find their way onto social media dashes, evoking the struggles, preoccupations and emotions of the postmillennial adolescent.
