    Summary

    Eventually Poppy crept in late, soaking wet from the rain, said, "I'm done with Freddie," and climbed into bed. And Kate looked at Drippy, because none of them had ever dated someone long enough for a break-up to last as long and sting as much as Poppy's must have, and Kate wasn't sure what to do, or how to reach out without feeling selfish.

    Summary

    Whenever Poppy had a hard time doing something, from homework to friendship bracelets for Ruby -- total waste of time, in retrospect -- to yoga positions, her mom used to say the best art was born out of instinct and creativity and being clear without being seen.

    Summary

    If she expected no revelations in months of sharing classes and lacrosse practice and a dorm and friends, she doesn't see why her stomach should feel disquieted by the idea of Poppy being single now. It's still senseless. Dorm mates are off-limits by definition, and friends who have dated a boy are the kind of crushes you have to write off as folly and forget about. Kate is not an idiot. She knows better than this.

    Summary
