for mum. who bought me thousands of sweet valley high paperbooks when I didnt know how to read English. you gave me all my words. one day, there wont be any need to run, and you’ll catch your biggest breath. i promise you.
And for my sister. for dean, and especially, for mark. i am your biggest fan.
and finally, for me –
because i didn’t know how or what to write, but I knew I had to begin.
