Why are you being so pessimistic? I asked myself. Miriam is only moving! She isn’t dying, or disappearing…
If she wanted to yell at me, she could have easily done it at home. So what else could she want?
Yes, it was only one year of school, but an entire nine months of struggling, of 12th-grade exams and lots of note taking. How would I manage?
They want to put me in therapy. The school wants me to see their social worker. They think I am depressed
I sniffed. “I’m worried. She’s so much like Yonah, it’s scary”
Somehow, I knew what to say. “I want to tell your mommy a secret”
