My kid brought home his/her first library book home from school. The child was extremely excited about the whole library process, and eagerly began reading the book.
It's was story about a boy who moves to a new school and is nervous about meeting new friends. His teacher, who was new that year, too, told him that she was nervous as well. She said that her fondest wish was for him to eat lunch with her that day. And every day, he and his classmates noticed that she had a new fondest wish, whether it be that Dylan and Jonathan get along, or they all memorize a poem. They looked forward to hearing what her new fondest wish would be.
One day, the teacher died.
School is turning out to be a real bummer.
