Molly ran a hot tub of water, rummaged through the assortment of hair products, lotions, and supplies she had shoved into the small cabinet under the sink. Finally, she found a half used bottle of bath salts one of the girls had given her. She poured the entire contents of the bottle into the running water. The lilac smell was almost overpowering, but soon she was covered with the hot scented water. She closed her eyes and tried to relax.

The water cooled, but Molly’s disposition didn’t. She fed the pain, reliving every comment Laney, Travis, and Lissa had made. The people closest to her seemed to be the least understanding. She pulled on her nightgown. She didn’t say goodnight to Travis. She climbed into bed, pulled the comforter and a heavy layer of self-pity over her and cried herself to sleep.

  4. I agree with the previous comment that it's nice to see main characters who aren't in their early 20s.
