I need to write it all down. That’s the only way I’llbelieve it’s true. Spring break, eighth grade. All those incredible,impossible things. Did they really happen? I’ve tried ahundred times to tell mysel that they couldn’t have.That none o it is possible. And I’m right; none o it

happen, exactly as I’m going to tell it now.

The day began like the frst day o any other schoolholiday. Dad was in bed with a cup o coee andthe Saturday paper. Mom was on the phone to Gran.Jamie, my older brother, was at the music shop in townwhere he’s had a weekend job or the last two years.

And that was pretty much themoment my lie changed orever.Not that I knew it, yet.The frst indication that things weren’t right was thatMom didn’t even use my proper name. Or, rather, she
