Quote 1.  "Mrs. Engstrom, this is the daughter of Mrs. Trevor's niece." Augustus said.

 Explanation: I think this quote is important because it shows that Mr. Trevor does not want a relationship with Samantha. It shows that Augustus is a mean man and doesn't really care for other people. Samantha wants to get to know Augustus because he is a famous writer and she wants to become a famous writer to.       Page 5


Quote 2.  "I'm in prison!" 

Explanation: I think this quote is important because it shows how upset Samantha is about her situation. Samantha says this because she's scared, and feels like it's a prison.  It is a figurative speech meaning that she has a room like prison.     Page 7
