"Each creature was in total disregard for the others. They, each and every one, were fighting for oxygen and attempting to leave their life-giving bay to do so."
"All they're trying to do is come up for air."
"All of them - the shrimp, the flounder, the crabs -- they're all coming up for air. Somehow, for reasons that take a scientist to explain, the oxygen level at the bottom drops too low and everything rushes to the surface." (page 83, Coming Up For Air)Patti Callahan Henry writes an emotionally charged novel of love, secrets, loss and finding of oneself in her novel, Coming Up For Air. With finesse, she captures the mood, the memories, making the characters come alive within the pages, encapsulating you in their stories. I really enjoyed this novel. Coming Up For Air is a lovely summer's read for the beach, easy to pick up and difficult to put down. Much like the memory of a gentle breeze as it blows in off the ocean, a single breath of which carries a myriad of scents and sensations, Coming Up For Air lingers fondly in your mind and in your heart.
“There are nights when the places and spaces in a life shift, disassemble, and then reassemble in the sliver of time between moments, between seconds. There are people who enter or reenter a life, who touch you or laugh with you in the middle of a jubilee, in the midst of nature's sacrifice, so that your life couldn't be the same even if you wanted it to be so.”
"My mother gives a faint shriek and Prim buries her face in her hands, but I feel more like the people I see in the crowd on television. Slightly baffled. What does it mean? Existing pool of victors?
Then I get it, what it means. At least, for me, District 12 has only three existing victors to choose from. Two male. One female...
I am going back into the arena." (page 173)
“The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol’s plans. The symbol of the rebellion.”(page 386)
