Laurie Halse Anderson

“Eating plain toast will detonate her.

"I'll have some honey."

When the bread is done I scrape on a microscopic layer of it and pour a cup of coffee, black. She pretends not to listen or watch as I crunch through my breakfast. I pretend that I don't notice her pretending.”


Laurie Halse Anderson, Wintergirls
