"How long have you been here?" Jenny asks Blanche.
"Since the winter before last."
"So why've you stayed?"
Blanche blinks at the question. "You have no manners, miss."
"Oh, I've got some," says Jenny," they're just not what you might call pretty. Diamond in the rough, that's me."
Blanche rolls her eyes. "And why shouldn't I have stayed, may I ask?"
"Most move on through," observes Jenny. "As if the City's just a mouth, swallowing them whole, and the rest of America's the belly where they end up."
"I hope you've had your scratch?" she asks Jenny, suddenly wary.
"Jenny slaps her sleeve above the elbow. "Stood in line for a day, eight years back, when it hit the City last."
"I thought perhaps you'd take your chances," Blanche teases, "being so devil-may-care."
Jenny grins back. "Devil-may-care's not the same as dumb as an ox."
I'm super ridiculously angry at Frog Music for being such a good book and so sad that I nearly started crying three times already and I'm super ridiculously angry at you for suggesting I read it and I'm super ridiculously angry at myself for almost passing it by as "eh it sounds okay but I've got so many other books to read."
I'm also super ridiculously angry that I'm not reading it right this very minute and I have to do this weird thing people call "work."
