Do you remember your BFF in 6th grade? The one who saw you through all the ups and downs and ins and outs of pre-adolescence? The one who encouraged you with words of 6th grade wisdom and reminded you that adolescence was just a season of life, not your forever life?
Her name was Margaret. And though we had a fictional relationship, she just got me. At the end of a tough school day, she was there. When it seemed like all my friends were changing and yet I was not, she assured me that I was ok. She was the one who could relate to my secret crush emotions. She's the one who got me through hormones, undergarments, and life.
She was my best friend. And on some days, she was my only friend.
But then, some books are like that.
