It started because somebody wanted a tuna sandwich.
In our tiny but neat living room, Charlie spread out on the sofa and sighed dramatically.
“I’m so hungry,”
“I haven’t eaten since last night.”
Judy and Becky gasped in unison— and also in admiration.
Charlie was one of those limelight-loving kids with parents who were so hipster, they decided to give their daughter a boy’s name.
Patting her stomach, if you could even call it a stomach, Charlie demanded a sandwich.
“I have turkey,”
I don’t eat meat.
Do you have tuna?”
So there I was, two minutes later, at the doorway to the even smaller kitchen.
The girls’ fast-paced chatter, despite being only two yards behind me, seemed to fade away.
Instead, the kitchen’s dingy white walls and oak brown cupboards pressed intensely into my vision.
Oh gosh, the kitchen.
Ma wouldn’t be home for another two hours.
It should be okay, right?

We are also a scrappy young startup looking to make sure that we spend our resources wisely. This means that in some cases we only edit and publish small portions of a book to begin with.
