I’m fascinated with their pure light. It soothes me. I want to be pure and holy. Pure and holy and kind and respectful. In the morning all I can remember is praying the rosary and asking Our Lady to help me become more like her. indd 40 1/16/09 1:49:29 PM Chapter 6 It’s a pretty spring day. I’m in my room doing things— twelve-year-old things, puttering—arranging my hair bands, lining up my Nancy Drew books, sharpening my pencils, and I’m thinking about my science class. Sister Daniel teaches it, and she’s so weird.

They stop at both landings, so she can sit and rest for a few minutes. Mommy has on her penny loafers, navy-blue knee socks, gray flannel Bermuda shorts, a starched white blouse, and a white wool blazer with a pretty gold, red, and navy blue emblem on it. She smells like Chanel No. 5. She looks like she washed and set her hair and she’s wearing makeup, with her pretty red lipstick. She sees me. I start to cry. “Mommy! Oh, Mommy! You’re home! ” We’re hugging each other tight. ” Daddy’s pushing me away from her.

Mom rushes behind me. “Don’t say anything about being home from school,” she whispers. ” “I can’t wait to see you, Ammy,” I say, speaking of the plans for her to come for Christmas. “Here, let me give Mom the phone. ” I run into my bedroom, close the door, lie down on my bed, and stare at the ceiling. I hate being only thirteen. I wish I were old enough to leave. I’d pack my suitcase right now and go live with Ammy. I roll over to stare out the window. Rays of moonlight dance across the radiator, just below the sill.
