Francine Pascal Fearless

Fearless introduces us to Gaia Moore, a girl born without the gene for fear. Gaia’s mother was murdered, and her father, Tom Moore, a famous covert antiterrorist mastermind, is in hiding. Now 17 years old, Gaia is living in New York City with Tom’s CIA friend, George, and his wife, Ella. Gaia is a prime target for terrorists and is in constant danger, but she is trained in all forms of combat so she can defend herself. Like Buffy and Xena, Gaia Moore is a force.
But she is also a high school student, trying to be like everyone else. As her friendships develop, we see that Gaia is in many ways a typical teen — when she’s not busy getting herself into and out of dangerous situations, righting wrongs, avenging hurts, and solving mysteries.

Francine Pascal Fearless Quotes

  • “It’s so trendy, almost bleeding to death. All the cool girls are doing it.”
  • “He slowed down a bit more. “Gaia, how do you know these things?” She shrugged. “I’m smart.” “And modest, too.” “Modesty is a waste of time,” she pronounced. “I’ll keep that in mind.”
  • “When I first heard the word existential, I didn’t know what it meant. But then I found out that no one knows what it means, so now I use it all the time.”
  • “I am seventeen. The good things about seventeen are that you’re not sixteen. Sixteen goes with the word sweet, and I am so far from sweet.”
  • “Life’s one great lesson was: Do not care. Not caring was a person’s real protection.”
  • “She figured if you weren’t woman enough to carry your doughnuts with pride, you shouldn’t be eating them.”
  • “Another funny thing about having friends was that they expected things of you. they made you want to not be a terrible, awful, execrable person. They made you feel worse when you were one. It was a lot easier not to have any friends.”
  • “Humiliation, by the way, is a truly terrible emotion. It’s at the bottom of the pile.”
  • “But the way I see it, dying without knowing love would be a tragedy.”
  • “Luck doesn’t shine her light on each of us equally. She is arbitrary, irrational, unfair and sometimes downright cruel.”
  • “As the crow flies. That’s how she liked to walk. So what if she had nowhere to go? So what if no one on earth knew or probably cared where she was or when she’d get home? That wasn’t the point. It didn’t mean she had to take a long way. She was starting a new school in the morning, and she meant to put as much distance between herself and tomorrow as she could. Walking fast didn’t stop the earth’s slow roll, but sometimes it felt like it could.”
  • “Losers with no imagination say that if you start a new school, there has to be the first day. How come they haven’t figure out how to be that? Just think existentially. All you do is take what is supposed to be the first day and bury someplace in the next month. By the time you get around to it a month later, who cares?”
  • “What sucked was that her room was on the fourth floor of a four-story house because she hated walking past every other room on her way in and out. She was like a latter-day Rapunzel except her hair was only a few inches below her shoulders, lightly fried, not all that blond, and furthermore, who the hell was ever going to climb up to give her a hand? The guy in the wheelchair from school?
