If you’ve cracked open the cover of Leah Konen’s The Romantics, then you’re probably well aware of Cara, Gael’s hot-sauce-wielding “dream girl.” And if you read the acknowledgments in the back of the book, you’d find that author Leah Konen is a fan of the spicy stuff herself.
There are two things we couldn’t love more in life (OK, maybe next to chocolate) and that’s condiments and Leah’s book. So to celebrate National Hot Sauce Day, we’re listing some of our favorite saucy quotes from one of our favorite YA reads. Check them out!
“She doused everything in hot sauce, took a chip, and popped it in her mouth. ‘I love hot sauce,’ she said.”
“Hot sauce is like my own personal rebellion. Both my parents hate everything spicy, whereas I’m all, can it be hot enough to make my tongue hurt, please?”
“He didn’t need a girl who broke all the rules. He needed a girl who thought indulging in ultra-spicy hot sauce was breaking the rules.”
“Even at school, everyone’s all, let’s go eye up frat boys with beer bellies every single weekend! And I’m like, I’m going to watch R-rated movies at home without having to feel awkward, and buy every kind of hot sauce ever!”
“He tried to focus. If this were a Wes Anderson movie, how would it go? Certainly, Wes wouldn’t have him pass up a vivacious, beautiful girl who stole hot sauce and liked to hike and was just generally awesome? Just because he was a little less than 100 percent sure she was the one for him? That was silly.”
