Leena I can't decide. Thoughts?

Cheryl Real. It fits with Joan Fish, Nick's mother, having lived in the house across the street until it was destroyed 1941, and why Ms. Ingham, who was around at the time and is quite real, said that she knew Joan very well. She was the only character in the book who wasn't confused when Eliza spoke of Joan across the street.

It's funny, because up until when Eliza finally lets go of everything and starts to come back together at the end, her evening at the Fishes' was the most real-feeling event in the whole book. It seemed fitting to me at the end that they should be a part of her life when she returned to sanity.
