|It occurred to her then that if she
played guitar, she would not have these kinds of problems. She
thought of the guitar-playing girls on TV. They didn't care about
cheerleaders and soccer players and feeling let out. All they

shoes. They were above middle school and all the stupid things
that happened there, which is exactly where Kate wanted to be.
