The summer of 1985. 

The summer I turned thirteen. 


Too old for Scooby Doo and Fred Flintstone, old enough to ask questions about the Unabomber and the famine in Africa, but not quite old enough to understand the hostage situation of the Iran-Contra Affair, I wanted to grow up faster than I should. 

I wasn’t a little girl anymore.

But I wasn’t a grown-up either. 

The summer my best friend died.

I made friends with Grief.
