"i was the girl on yearbook, charity league, social chair… whatever my mom told me to do. i got straight a’s: sometimes a b in math, but my dad was a whiz, so he’d help me. and then on the weekends, i rode my little sister’s pony for fun. i even won some blue ribbons."
"and then what happened?"
"well, my dad lost all his money, the pony lost all its hair, and my mom? kind of lost her mind. also, i got kicked out of school and my friend died. i guess everything happened. and then at some point, i just stopped being the girl who belonged at college. or anywhere, for that matter.”
"everyone belongs somewhere."
"maybe not everyone. maybe some people just get lost.”
