Natalie | 6 comments I read this book in elementary school, so it likely came out before the 2010s. It was about a girl whose father sends her to a private school. I think it’s because he remarried and she tried to run away. She only has one male friend.

I specifically remember one scene where the headmaster is speaking to her and the main character wants to cry. She stops herself by thinking of vanilla ice cream behind her eyes.

There’s another scene where she speaking to (I think) the headmaster’s wife and the headmaster’s wife confesses to her that she used to have a son who accidentally strangled himself in his sleep. He was wearing a (I think) Peter Pan costume and the belt got caught up around his neck.

At the end of the book the main character is at a beach and her male friend (from the beginning of the book) finds her and tells her that he wants to run away. He invited her to go with him. She decides not to.

Her name might be Georgia? Or Giorgia? I recall people calling her Georgie as a nickname.
