“London was really cool. We stayed there last night, with friends of Kendra’s mom. My mom and dad thought we should have a rest before we came over to the mainland.”
Kelly has lain down on her tummy on the lounger, face on her arms, but now she lifts her head, squinting in the sun, and stares incredulously at Paige.
“When you came over to the mainland?” she asks. “You do know that the United Kingdom is a completely different country from Italy, right?”
Paige’s blond eyebrows knit in confusion.
“But it’s all part of Europe?” she says, looking at Kendra for help. “I mean, England’s like an island, off the mainland of Europe.”
“We’re a separate country,” Kelly says coldly. “It would be like saying that Greenland’s an island off the mainland of the United States.”
“Isn’t it?” Paige says, giggling helplessly. “I was never very good at geography.”
“Kelly’s right,” Kendra drawls. “Some of us Americans do have half an idea where other countries in the world are located.”
“Are you two friends?” I ask, because I can see that Kelly’s still seething.
“Our parents know each other from the country club,” Paige says, not a whit upset by being effectively called an idiot by Kendra. “Our moms play tennis together on Saturdays.”
“And our dads golf together,” Kendra says self-mockingly now. “It’s all super-cozy. I wanted to come to Italy for the summer, and I found this course online--”
“But her mom didn’t want her to go on her own, and she told my mom, and my mom thought it would be a great learning experience for me--” Paige bursts in enthusiastically.
“And teach you where some other flipping countries are besides your own,” Kelly mutters sotto voce.”
