‘the carnival I wanted’

Everything about this = 💖💖💖

‘But what I remember most clearly were the nights when I wasn’t at the carnival. With my window open, I could hear the sounds of it: the rides rattling, and people shouting, and the music. I would wonder if any of my friends were there that night, whether they were winning any prizes. And I’d fall asleep with the sounds of it all in my head. That was the carnival I wanted in this book. The one that comes in and possesses your imagination, bending all your thoughts to it like some kind of fever. It was the heart of the town while it was there, and it made everything strange and beautiful for a while.’
