“"One of Sara's 'pretends' is that she is a princess," said Jessie. "She plays it all th time--even in school. She wants Ermengarde to be one, too, but Ermengarde says she is too fat.""She is too fat," said Lavinia.

Only last night he went completely schizo on me, and told me he loves me.Grandmere: And what is so wrong about a boy who says he loves you?Mia: Nothing. Only I'm not in love with him, see? So it wouldn't be fair of me to, you know, lead him on.Grandmere: I don't see why not.Mia: Because, Grandmere. People just don't go around doing things like that. Not nowadays.Grandmere: Is that so?

Then shedding an unwanted suitor might be considered wise, so that one can make oneself available to the man one truly desires.”P. 75
