Page 77 of The Emerald City

My friend Cindy Borgne tagged me for the lucky 7 meme. The meme sounded fun (kind of variation on the Six Sentence Sunday I used to participate in), and so I decided to do it with THE EMERALD CITY.

The abbreviated version:

Go to Page 77
Copy down the next 7 lines.

These lines turned turned out to be the main character, angry teenager Gail, having a conversation with a teacher about how she's adjusting to her new school:

“I have it under control. A lot of time life sucks. It isn’t about hoping bad things never happen. It’s about learning to handle those bad things. Wait long enough, the wind will change. The only thing we can control is our reaction. What people hate today, maybe they love tomorrow.”
