A goodbye from Marah.
Seeing relationships as they are.
All is full of love.
Transferring schools, other people’s expectations, and life after war.
“I did not mean to get pregnant—it just happened.”
A new sense of purpose.
“I don’t want to be sitting in a classroom for six hours a day.”
Changing our lives and brains.
Weird week? Check. Marriage proposal? Check.
Marah has a surprise.
