The Revealers sequel opens up kids' struggles to become themselves in a hyper-linked world.
from True Shoes:
“So this boy,” CC said. “Are you in love with him?”
The kitchen table was packed with fruits and Filipino dishes. My new favorite was kutsinta, little rice muffins topped with grated coconut. They were sweet but the moment was tense.
“I ... care about him,” Catalina finally said. “And he cares about me. And that’s not a bad thing,” she added warmly.
“No,” CC said — “it’s a dangerous thing. That is different.”
Cat gave me a bug-eyed look. Oh, this was starting well.
But then she just told her. She laid it all out, about Richie’s home life and what happened on Saturday. I’d been wondering how she had gotten herself to the hospital without CC finding out. It turned out she had said she was going for a walk, then used her cell to call a taxi.
