Reflection #1

Emma Sweeny, 15, has always felt as though she was the odd one out in her family. Her

mom thinks she is a dull and boring and that she should get out more often and not worry

about her sister (summer) so much. Her tall pace face, white hair, and blue eyes, was

the goal is to capture the child and bring her back to there own worlds. There are portals
