I was just reading my book and the kids are thinking about joining the other peculiars army to take down the wights. this quote from my book says
“that peculiarness wasn’t a deficiency, but an abundance; that it wasn’t we who lacked something normals had, but they who lacked peculiarness. That we were more, not less.”
That means that being peculiar doesn’t mean that you are not normal or less than a human it means that you can be who you are and not be afraid of the gift that you have. That quote really stood out to me.
