Sample text

Four months and look at me! Soon, I won’t be able to see my feet anymore. Or, I could be lucky and stay pretty small, like all the women in our family. Yeah. Like I’ve been lucky so far. Look at me! I’m hideous! There’s not much to do about it except cover all the mirrors in my room, and race past all the rest. Comfort I crawl into bed, pull Mary’s words to my chin like a warm blanket. Her faith is so strong. Maybe if I keep close it just might rub off. Morning Has Broken I. I rise like any other morning, inviting Jehovah into my day.

That makes two of us. Lonely Night My bed and pillow both seem made of rocks. There is no sleep to be found. Even my thoughts toss and turn. If I were still a little girl, I could curl up next to Mother, let her tell me everything will be alright. Lord Jehovah, please be my mother tonight. Fat Who will want me? No more tight abs to show off at the beach. No slender waist to catch a cute boy’s eye. Four months and look at me! Soon, I won’t be able to see my feet anymore. Or, I could be lucky and stay pretty small, like all the women in our family.

Maybe, one day it will. Date Trey said he’d be happy to hang out with me wherever, so I invite him to video night at church. ), Trey whispers in my ear that he wants me all to himself. No more of these group dates on video night, or lame trips (his words) to the local skating rink for spins around the ice and cups of hot chocolate.
