We all gotta grow up some day.

that was then, this is now.

quotes

"it takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." (www.quotessays.com) i think this quote relates to the book very well because Byran had to grow up and make a desition to better himself

another quote

"the hardest part about growing up is letting go of what you were used to; and moving on with something you're now." (www.searchquotes.com) i think this quote relates to the book because bryan was used to being with mark all the time but he hasd to do what was best for mark and himself

last quote

¨forgive me for my mistakes, i'm still a kid learning the responsibility of being an adult.¨(99quanai.com) i think this quote relations the book fairly well. Reason being, is because Bryan and Mark made a lot of mistake as well as learned from them.

the authors message

I think the authors message about growing up from the book ¨That was Then, This is Now.¨ everyone makes mistakes as well as learn from them like I said before in the previous quote i used. The authors message is about everyone needing to grow up at one point in life.

my opinion

I for one agree with the authors message completely. i do think that everyone needs to grow up at one point in life. i believe that maturity levels should be set to a certain standard at a certain age.
