When she was eight years old, Mary Lynn Roddy was surprised to hear that the family would be moving out of the idyllic village of Nahma, Michigan. Well, she wouldn’t go, that’s all… Their large picketed yard, with two apple trees and a strawberry patch, could never be replaced. And what of her four little playmates who came over every day? Could grown-ups really do this to kids? Ahhh, yes, she found. Four days later, on the backseat of the car, she cried and cried. Her mother folded some papers in half and told her to write down exactly how she felt. Once she did that, she felt ever so much better. After that, Mary Lynn wrote.
