TITLE: Fractured Sky
GENRE: YA Fantasy
Rose plucked the last of the herbs her mother requested, guilt gnawing at her insides for a lie she hadn’t even told yet. She stood, tossing her purple and blonde plait back behind her shoulders, and tucking the sharp smelling herbs into her basket. She could not think of any circumstances in which the joy she was expected to feel for her two best friends could be plausible. Smiling and pretending to be happy for Hallie and Leilah would be expected.
Rather, smiling and actually being happy for them would be expected.
