A girl lies alone in the darkness, clutching a letter to her heart.
Eponine remembers being a child: her swing and the peach tree, and the baby brother she loved. But mostly she remembers being miserable. Taught to lie and cheat, and to hate the one girl, Cosette, who might have been her friend.
Now, at sixteen, the two girls meet again, and Eponine has one more chance. But what is the price of friendship--the love of a boy?
Why I'm waiting:
I love the fact that Susan's exploring Eponine's background, and the struggle Eponine must have felt upon realizing her love for Marius. I can't wait to read her take!
