If that’s the way he wants to be, she thought, I’ll never again ask him for bus fare; I’ll suffer and never, never let him know about it.  But he’ll regret it when I simply collapse from exhaustion.  I’ll collapse quietly. (from From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg)

Everyone who has had moments of pure, self-serving drama and self-righteousness like our friend Claudia here, please raise your hand.  (Mine’s up, for the record.)  And if your hand is raised, then you should read this book right now, because you will laugh and laugh.
