This Thursday's memorable quote comes from Nobody, a book by author Jennifer Lynn Barnes.
The reason this quote stood out from the myriad of sentences I've read through during the week, is because of how easy it is to apply to our everyday lives. How often have we ever felt alone, unwanted or like we simply don't exist? Sixteen year-old Claire's wise words stuck with me and I'm excited to share them with you all.
“Do you know what I thought when you tried to kill me? The first time? I thought, How can somebody want me dead when no one knows I'm alive?” ― Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Nobody
Can you relate with this quote? Have you read Nobody? Let me know your thoughts below!
There are people in this world who are Nobody. No one sees them. No one notices them. They live their lives under the radar, forgotten as soon as you turn away.
That’s why they make the perfect assassins.
The Institute finds these people when they’re young and takes them away for training. But an untrained Nobody is a threat to their organization. And threats must be eliminated.
Sixteen-year-old Claire has been invisible her whole life, missed by the Institute’s monitoring. But now they’ve ID’ed her and send seventeen-year-old Nix to remove her. Yet the moment he lays eyes on her, he can’t make the hit. It’s as if Claire and Nix are the only people in the world for each other. And they are—because no one else ever notices them.
