"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne


Summary:

Gianna "Greenie" Adams earned her nickname from using the wrong hair dye accidently, prompting her strict Baptist parents to boot her out of the house at age thirteen. She spends the summer with Great-aunt Eulalia Felix, who drank hairspray and was married seventeen times. The town, Sand Bird, California, is full of abandoned buildings which Greenie explores. She meets a young man, a hardened police officer, a delinquent missionary kid, and a wide-eyed orphan. Not one normal person lives here. The story's climax is Greenie holding a party in Sand Bird...drumroll please...the GREATEST PARTY ON EARTH!

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]
