Earlier this week, my daughters and I watched If I Stay. My younger one had just finished reading the book so we got cozy and watched the DVD I had requested for Christmas. During this, I was reminded of one of my favourite quotes from the books where Adam reassures Mia that he loves HER. Not her clothes or her hair. Her. I think it's a lovely message to any girl, anyone for that matter, about being yourself and wholeheartedly embracing who you are.

Hell, you're one of the punkiest girls I know, no matter who you listen to or what you wear."
