„You’re not nervous, are you?“ I asked.
„What do you think?“Lori was terrified. She was not sure what she was supposed to do once she got toNew York. Thathad always been the vaguest part of our escape plan. Back in the fall, I’d had no doubt nike air max 1 grey that she could get a scholarship to one of the city’s universities. She’d been a finalist for a National Merit Scholarship, but she’d had to hitchhike into Blu nike air max 1 efield to take the test, and she got rattled when the trucker who picked her up put the moves on her; she arrived nearly an hour late and botched the test.
Mom, who supported Lori’s New York plans and kept saying she wished she were going to the big city herself, suggested that Lori apply to the Cooper Union art school.
