"Scuffing through the first fall leaves, Petra drifted into the game she often played with herself: Ask a question that doesn't have an answer. Why was yellow cheerful, she wondered, and why was it always a surprise--even when it came in an ordinary shape, like a lemon or an egg yolk? Picking up a yellow leaf, she held it in front of her face." - Blue Balliett, Chasing Vermeer. A sharper lemon blend for the first of the two color motifs that tangle and begin to draw our main characters together.
