Sample text

Shabbas once said I just had to read because you can really identify with the heroine and it takes you somewhere else. Which is where I want to be, for sure. It turns out that she was right. The book truly does take my mind off things. Before I know it I’ve read a dozen chapters. I feel like I’m on a sailing ship with the heroine. Until I start wondering what Charlotte Doyle would do if she switched places with me. And I realize that I don’t know what she would do any more than I know what I should do.

Other kids might groan when they walk through the big front doors, but I breathe a sigh of relief. It’s all so routine and boring here. Although when Laura Loh, who is my second-best friend, waves to me from her locker, I pretend not to see her and just go straight into class. I know she wants to talk to me about Greg Iverson and how cute he is and do I think he likes her . . and I can’t bear it. For some reason I just can’t think of anything to say to other kids right now, and all the stuff that used to interest me seems kind of unreal.

Instead, I just have this feeling that they’re out there somewhere and that they will be back. And when they come back I will be there and they’ll hug me and explain why they were gone and things will be all right again. I do care whether I live or die. It is the middle of the night. It is still Wednesday night, a night that just doesn’t seem to want to end, that just keeps creeping along. But my mind is moving like a runaway freight train. Run away, that’s exactly what I feel like doing. But run away where?
