My Never-ending Booknotes: Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley

My Never-ending Booknotes is a weekly meme created by my awesome friend April @ Books 4 Juliet where we can share our favorites quotes or conversation from a book.
If you want to join, just go HERE and have fun.

It took me two weeks to read this book because I was sick, but I loved every part of it, even when I read just ten pages a day. 
Today my favorite quote is a conversation between two members of the secret society that wants Sam out.  I think that explain a lot about their actions.

“The box was opened. And within, all evil things were set let loose upon the world. […] But the most powerful item of all remained. Hope.”
“Hope that the future does not have to repeat the past.”
“Hope that what is in the world can be made pure again. […] The box was opened. But hope will see it closed again.”
“Hope will see it closed” 

The Book 


Sam McKenna’s never turned down a dare. And she's not going to start with the last one her brother gave her before he died.
So Sam joins the first-ever class of girls at the prestigious Denmark Military Academy. She’s expecting push-ups and long runs, rope climbing and mud-crawling. As a military brat, she can handle an obstacle course just as well as the boys. She's even expecting the hostility she gets from some of the cadets who don’t think girls belong there. What she’s not expecting is her fiery attraction to her drill sergeant. But dating is strictly forbidden and Sam won't risk her future, or the dare, on something so matter how much she wants him.

As Sam struggles to prove herself, she discovers that some of the boys don’t just want her gone—they will stop at nothing to drive her out. When their petty threats turn to brutal hazing, bleeding into every corner of her life, she realizes they are not acting alone. A decades-old secret society is alive and active… and determined to force her out.
At any cost.

Now time's running short. Sam must decide who she can trust...and choosing the wrong person could have deadly consequences...
