IT ALL started the day my mother came up to me and said: “Okay Lee honey, I've got something to tell you.” She started out cautiously, testing the waters. I didn't like her tone of voice – looking back on this now that should have been my first warning. I hesitated at the steps, my palms slick with sweat on railing. “Alright... To put it bluntly,” She took a brief pause to take one of her deep “cleansing” breaths before she continued. That was warning sign number two, I just didn't know it then. “ We're moving.” My first reaction was: stop, drop, and roll on the floor in a fit of uncontrollable laughter. “Whew, that’s a good one mom!” Moving? Pssh! We've lived here as long as I could remember. I gripped the railing for balance as I wiped a tear from my eye and met her gaze – she was dead serious… Fudge. *** Bleak is a story about a girl whose life is thrown upside down when her mother decides its time that they move.
