Quote #10

For the only thing she could think of was the clear and terrible necessity: Mae Tuck must never go to the gallows. Whatever happened to the man in the yellow suit, Mae Tuck must not be hanged. Because if all they had said was true, then Mae, even if she were the cruelest of murderers and deserved to be put to death—Mae Tuck would not be able to die. (20.25)

When Mae is threatened by execution, the worry isn't that she' s going to die. It's that she can't. And you know what that would mean: the jig is up.
