Wow, the scene with Isobel's parents sheds a lot of light on Isobel's problems. They aren't exactly the most understanding, even if they are concerned about her. I don't think they realise just how serious the problem is, and a simple "I'm fine" sets them at ease. :-/

I kind of love Emily's family, though. They seem like the coolest people! And living on a farm in the Scottish Highlands is so my kind of jam. Her siblings are pretty amusing too.

What a great place for Isobel to spend some time, too, because Emily's family seem like a supportive type. And Isobel is actually eating (even if only just to not appear rude, but still)

So uhh... they're planning to bring special biscuits to someone in the hospital who just overdosed on recreational magic? Heh.. Well, if it helps. I suppose it could be worse. I am curious to know how Laurel is doing, though.

Author's Response: Yeah, writing Isobel's parents in that scene was rather heartbreaking. I knew kids with parents like that, and it made me really angry. They're mostly nice people, and I weirdly liked writing Ahmad, but they're very harsh on their daughter's fragile self esteem. I imagined Isobel as having gone through a chubby phase, because her model (Kat Dennings) is REALLY curvy. They couldn't tell that their daughter was just developing early, because the rest of the family is so willowy.

Emily's family is definitely the reason she is the most stable. Writing about them was fun too, because it was another little era-appropriate thing I got to research!

Ah! So pleased you said what you did, Emily thinks EXACTLY the same thing in the next chapter--sneaking those cookies into rehab: good idea? But from what I recall from my teen years, that's the way kids think.
