the last book I ever read (Elizabeth McCracken's Thunderstruck & Other Stories, excerpt seven)

from Thunderstruck & Other Stories by Elizabeth McCracken:

The plan was to disrupt their lives, a jolt to Helen’s system before school started again in the fall. The city would be strange and beautiful, as Helen herself was strange and beautiful. Perhaps they’d understand her there. Perhaps the problem all this time was that her soul had been written in French.
