Best Quotes:

“I loved your son from the bottom of my heart. I would have taken care of him and lived with him forever, if he’d given me the opportunity. You were very lucky to be his father.”

Pablo to Spencer’s Father, The MoonStone Girls, Brooke Skipstone (2022). Loc. 3593

“They want boys to shower and crap in public to prove they’re not gay,” I said. “If you stay limp among all those wet, soapy guys, you’re good to go. Girls get stalls to ensure they don’t become gay.”

Tracy, The MoonStone Girls, Brooke Skipstone (2022). Loc. 719
