Now a fear as deep as the ocean zipped through Keeper’s body, her biggest fear ever, one so deep, she knew not to ever, ever say it out loud, not ever. And then today, it crawled out of her like an ugly toad: If a girl’s own mother can swim away, what would keep everyone else from leaving too, especially if that same girl caused so much trouble? The toad of fear made a big fat cccrrooaaaakkkk right in Keeper’s stomach.
