Blink-182- Natives
Too relatable to explain. The only thing for me is that I "have the time of my life" so other people think I am okay, not so I think I am okay. Which one do you do? Or neither?

The series is by Pittacus Lore, though I am pretty sure that is not the author's real name. So there are two quotes from the same character that talk about hope. The first is: "There is always hope. No. Don't give up hope just yet. It's the last thing to go. When you have lost hope, you have lost everything. And when you think all is lost, when all is dire and bleak, there is always hope." The second is: "Become who you're meant to become. Grow strong and powerful and never forget for a minute the things you've learned along the way. Be noble, confident, and brave. Trust in your heart and your will. Never lose faith in yourself and never lose hope; remember, even when this world throws its worst and then turns its back, there is still always hope. And I am certain, someday, you will make it back home." The series is okay. The first book I liked well-enough, but they went downhill from there. The movie is definately much worse than the book, although I love the actor that plays John's guide. Anyway, those are the quotes, and I love them.

Those are awesome, they remind me of the lot of non-fiction writers I read. If you haven't yet, look into Hunter S Thompson. He's basically my literary hero. He's not so much about the whole hope thing, as he is about the absence of it, and how to cope with that. And yeah, it does suck when a series jumps the shark after the first book haha. I'll look into that first one! @JayZK :)

I will do so! And don't put to high of expectations on it, I enjoyed it when I was 15, so I am thinking if I read it again it may not have the same effect as it did the first time, but who knows! @TessStevens
