From my finished (!) contemporary YA, Outside In, a Christmas moment:
“From my mom, pajama pants and sweatpants for her lazy, chubby failure of a daughter. And a Moleskine notebook, maybe so I’d take even more notes in class.
Courtney got piles of Ann Taylor sweaters, size two. I knew they’d fit her exactly, because everything always did. Sweatpants vs. clingy sweaters—kind of obvious what my mother thought of us. I slumped off to put my presents in my suitcase.”
