"If you think of high school as a kingdom--and I don't mean the regular kind of kingdom we have today, like England or Monaco, I mean those small ones in fairy tales that probably weren't kingdoms at all so much as they were nobledoms where the nobles considered themselves kings and granted themselves the right of prima nochte, that kind of thing-- if you think of my high school like one of those, then Jeremy Cole would be the crown prince."
~The Beautiful Between by Alyssa B. Sheinmel (ISBN 978-0-375-86182-6)
