Quotes from This Book

  • “If nothing else comes of this, at least you’re making friends. That’s more than you had yesterday.”
  • “All children get nervous on their first day at a new school, and all secret agents get nervous on the first day of a mission. Combine the two and your chances of nervousness are greatly increased.”
  • “Luck? I’ve been wishing you luck from the moment I met you. What I wish for you now is a miracle.”
  • “‘Finally,’ Mr. Curtain grumbled, his smile instantly vanishing, as fake smiles often do.”
