"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 things didn't bother her. She'd gotten so used to everyone making fun of her for being a foster child or for her glasses or for hanging out with boys rather than girls (because girls were way too catty). She didn't care what people thought; but, from Evan, it hurt. More than it should have. "Not for any of this, at least.

It was what people thought of when they thought 'Irish' -- meat, potatoes, and a whole lot of alcohol.

Her Irish accent rippled through her own ears overtop the rumbling of voices at the Aquila bonfire, and she looked at Krystal. "Pizza has never been that spectacular for me. I've eaten it at least three times a night for the past four years... It gets tiring after a while."
