  • my stepmom's garden party

  • my shunned stepbrother
    Siobhan was 12 when she was forbidden by her mother to keep in contact with her step-brother, Brendan, when he left home at 18 to join the marines. She told Siobhan that she never wanted to see Brendan again and cursed the day that she ever married a man with a kid.
