O preguntarse quién fue el que le rompió el corazón. Y preguntarse por qué. Sobre todo porque sé que si fuera a otro instituto, aquel a quien han roto el corazón lo tendría roto por otra persona, así que, ¿por qué nos lo tomamos todo de manera tan personal? Y si yo fuera a otro instituto, nunca habría conocido a Sam ni a Patrick ni a Mary Elizabeth ni a nadie aparte de mi familia."
