Dreams, Hopes, and Plans Quotes Page 1
How we cite our quotes:
"I've picked you to accompany me on the greatest adventure of our mutual lives," Claudia repeated. (1.26)
Claudia sure does romanticize things, but in a way, it's because she believes that this is going to be a big and grand adventure. And it's true—those kids end up getting into a lot more than they bargained for.
On Tuesday night Jamie found his list of instructions under his pillow pinned to his pajamas. (2.1)
Talk about getting down to the nitty-gritty of adventure planning. Claudia leaves Jamie a note, and he takes the whole "sneaky and complicated" business to another level when he eats the whole note. Yes. Eats it.
They were better organized that second day. (4.11)
The process of achieving your hopes and dreams isn't an easy one, not even when you're kids with only the vaguest idea of what you want. Nope, you have to be prepared—and learn how to organize.
