July Question Meme: Day 8  
Asked by teagues_veil:

What is your favorite passage from your favorite book?

I'm not someone who usually pays that close attention to specific passages to have particular favorites since, aside from there so many moments in the actual book that speak to me, it's about the message and the story overall. With that being said, however, while I don't have the books readily at hand at the moment, here are a few:

-- Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang by Joyce Carol Oates
