I'll admit I picked up this book because of it's great title. Loved, loved, loved it (the book and the title.) It's keeping company with Tuck Everlasting on my favorite shelf.
Here's a quote to take and keep:
"It's better to travel with hope in one's heart than to arrive in safety...Celebrate today's failure because it's a clear sign that our voyage of discovery is not yet over. The day the experiment succeeds is the day the experiment ends. And I inevitably find that the sadness of ending outweighs the celebration of success."
