FOURTEEN

FOURTEEN

Mara and Jo, in their twenties, have been close friends since middle school. Jo, the more outgoing personality, is becoming increasingly dysfunctional over the years due to undiagnosed mental illness, or perhaps to drugs: no one is sure. Over the course of a decade, the more stable Mara sometimes tries to help, sometimes backs away to preserve herself, but never leaves behind her powerful childhood connection with Jo.
