This is a story about broken girls and a broken boy; it's a story about girls with angry sharp smiles; it's a story about healing and the way it's never quite done. It's a story about survival and carving out spaces to thrive. It hurt a little to read but it also made my heart sing. Alternately told in first person singular and first person plural this is a gorgeous narrative and one I won't soon forget.
