“Do you have any idea what my home life was like? Growing up with six sisters who looked exactly like me. It was like I didn’t even have my own name. I joined the circus because I was scared of spending the rest of my life as part of a matched set. At least I’m different now. Circus freak is a compliment.”

I think that her change from Book 1 to Book 3 isn’t realistic and her character in Book 1 was much more dynamic, interesting, and she was a better role model. Her struggle with what mattered to her, what love really meant, what it meant to be brave, and who she was without her bending was much more compelling than the conflict she’s dealing with now which is basically “why didn’t my sister get put in jail for the rest of her life” and “why am i such a jerk” and “why wasn’t my mommy proud of me.”
