When you have very strong feelings do you see different shades of colors?  Have you ever been close to someone who likes to do the same thing you do?  You both have a passion for the same thing.  You don't have to raise your hand, but has anyone in your family ever been through a divorce?  You have so many hurt feelings and you can't express yourself.  That is exactly what happened to Aurora (Rory).  She and her father love to draw and paint and because of what she
goes through she can't draw anymore.  Read and find out if Rory ever draws again or if her dad decides to return.  (Karen Womack, graduate student, <> )
