“‘Hey, Melissa!’ I shout. ‘Want to play with Ally?’ Melissa looks at Ally like she never met her before. Her father checks his watch. ‘I don’t know,’ he says. ‘That’s okay!’ Ally shouts. ‘We don’t have time to play either.’ She turns her back on her friend as they leave the park. ‘Why did you say that?’ I ask. ‘That’s not like you, Ally. You hurt her feelings.’ She shakes her head. ‘She has no feelings anymore.’ […] ‘There’s something wrong with them. They’re fuzzy and slow. They just go along” (37).

“‘There’s a big push up here
to get people out. There are
support groups in almost
every city.’” (298)
