Mom is crying again this morning. She does this thing where it’s like a faucet gets turned on inside her at random times.
The whites of my eyes look like road maps, veiny and red-rimmed and swollen, like I’ve been crying, even though I haven’t been crying.
I look wrecked.
This whole thing has warped me, I think. I’m a board left out in the rain, and it’s impossible to go back to being straight and undamaged ever again. This is who I am now.
The girl whose brother died.
I had been eyeing this book for a while and the kindle version went on sale, so I finally bought it. I have seen so many amazing reviews for this book and I’m excited to read it soon. Based on the snippets, I’m expecting a very emotional book, but it sounds really good.
