Father calls me Mary. Mother calls me Marie. Everybody else calls me Mary Marie. I'm thirteen years old. I'm going to live half the time with Mother and the other half with Father. Mother will go to Boston to live, and Father will stay here -- a divorce, you know. I've decided to make a book of it. It'll be so exciting to be living a story instead of reading it. Of course this will be a love story. There'll be my love story in two or three years, when I grow up, and while I'm waiting there's Father's and Mother's. It has been different living with a father and mother that are getting ready to be divorced from what it would have been living with the loving, happy-ever-after kind. Nurse Sarah says it's a shame and a pity, and that it's the children that always suffer. But I'm not suffering -- not a mite. I'm just enjoying it. It's so exciting. - Preface
