Welcome to The Stories in Between, a blog by Monika, an twenty two years old book lover from Poland.
"If you love two people at the same time, choose the second. Because if you really loved the first one, then you wouldn’t have fallen for the second."
"If you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it's yours. If it doesn't, it never was."
I’ve never written a love letter, so forgive me if I fail now… The simple thing would be to say that I love you. But, in truth, it’s so much more than that. I want you, America. I need you. I’ve held back so much from you out of fear. I’m afraid that if I show you everything at once, it will overwhelm you, and you’ll run away. I’m afraid that somewhere in the back of your heart is a love for someone else that will never die. I’m afraid that I will make a mistake again, something huge that you retreat into that silent world of yours.

(So I’m 98% sure this is the order, except Sosie. She isn’t mentioned after she first met America during the makeovers but America says that Ashley was the only girl from the first 8 to leave that she had met. But it can’t be anybody else because they are all in the latter part of the book (except for those who aren’t mentioned at all). So…)
