Both were around the same height and sported similar wild curls, but the lighting brought out the reddish hue in Gerardo’s brown hair. Max’s hair was like soft obsidian, dark and inviting. The junior also had a more defined jawline compared to the senior, and I wondered how I ever even came close to thinking that they looked identical. But if Max pushes me away like that, then he’s no better that Lalo.
I shot Diego a swift look, hoping he would shrug off my suspicions and explain what really happened. He hadn’t--no, couldn’t--tear his eyes away from Cari. I didn’t think he was capable of expressing such terror; his eyes looked as if they would pop out of his head, his jaw had dropped, and he had lost all the color in his face. Those teal eyes were darker than ever, glued to my younger half-sister.
Chapter IV, part iii: Gossip Column, New Kid, & Those Mean Hollingsworth Kids
I honestly love the idea of the teenage members of the court thinking they can keep a secret like this from the elders.

It makes him weirdly mature for nineteen, which makes his random moments of youthful behavior seem out of place.
Chapter IV, part ii: Cookies, Memories, & Awkward Conversation
