From Stephanie Zacharek's New York Times Book Review review of Jean Thompson's book "City Boy."

"Plausibility is overrated in novels. Fictional characters should be allowed to do things that real poeople never would, if only because fiction is a way of flexing the what-ifs of life, of assessing the consequences of mistakes we hope we'd never dare to make."
