Karla writes letters, mostly to her English teacher Mrs. Parker whom she adores. She writes about her feelings, her life and her thoughts. She writes about every possible thing. But the letters remain in her folder. Karla wants to give her teacher the letters, even just one. Just to show her how much she means to Karla. Even though it all works out fine in Karla's fantasies this is reality, and reality is far more complicated.
