This is a story of five high school students who struggle with their relationships and identities during the first few months of 2020.
“'A new job,' Mom said, 'back where I grew up.'”
"When Violet says she got accepted into the program, I squee."
"I finish the outline of the swoop of the prince’s hair (the kingdom’s kinda stuck in their 2000s-emo phase) before looking up."
“It is often stated as a fact that a person needs to feel some sort of pain in order to grow— we can see this literally when someone’s joints ache as their arms or legs grow longer. I am not sure how plausible this claim is though— too much stress can crush a sapling or snap a flower’s stem, for instance.”
"It’s not only because old books are cheaper— though that certainly helps."
