Quote for a birthday weekend

From a recent book group read:

“The most terrifying words you could hear in our house came out of Anouk’s mouth when you had a birthday coming up. ‘I’m making you something,’ she’d say, and no smile was wide enough to conceal the oceans of dread bubbling beneath.”
–Steven Toltz, A Fraction of the Whole (p. 367)
