“M'ok,” Krystal responded. Occasionally, she would drop things into conversations by accident that other people found shocking, not really realising how controversial they were because, for her, they were normal. Though, over the years, she'd learnt to be a bit more guarded about the contents of her family life. If you let on that your mum's boyfriends came and went in pretty quick succession, for example... well, people had quite a few names for your mum after that.

        "Nah, not hungry," Brielle lied. The truth was, she was hungry, but all summer in her foster home, Evan had made fun of her for eating a lot while going through her growth spurt. Typically, these... more
