Ever since I could remember, my mother has always told me to forget about the time before us and the world outside of our village, it is forbidden to know more than what the Elite Leaders have told us. We are required to stay in our cabins from seven at night till eight in the morning, with only a little amount of food and a hard bed for the both of us. We must stay inside the barriers of the community or else the Elite Leaders will decide our cause of death. No one knows exactly who the Elite Leaders are, or how they came to be, but it is best not to know for our safety. “Elizabeth, wake up, you have to go to school today if you do not remember,” said my mother as she tugged on my arm.

Go to bed yourself" (Lion 2). In many situations, Susan shows that she is the least courageous of the four children.

After that, my sister and I used to bang on pots and pans to push out the bad spirits of the year before. I have never been allowed to balance a pillow on my head without being reprimanded because it means that someone in our family will contract an illness or death.

In my bedroom at home I have a Black Jesus, a laughing Buddha, and several charms from tribes around the world.
