To my mother, the woman who made me believe I can do anything
I set my mind to—as long as I finished it.
The alarm blared for the third time sending an electric jolt through Josie Woods’ body. She hated waking up early in the morning. In fact, Josie hated a lot of things these days. She hated the new house they moved to in the city.

Josie even hated her father for leaving them in this state of destitution, but most of all she hated feeling lonely.
