the last book I ever read (Vendela Vida's We Run the Tides, excerpt six)

from We Run the Tides: A Novel by Vendela Vida:

When they leave, I stare up at my tilting canopy, contemplating the fact that Maria Fabiola is the heir to a sugar fortune. I picture her kitchen pantry, which we used to raid after school and on sleepovers. The pantry did have sugar, but I don’t remember her parents using it more than anyone else.
