Details about Start a Fire by Julia Wolf
Start a Fire by Julia Wolf – When I put my phone away, she opened the door, ushering me out to the vast parking lot in front of our high-rise apartment building. We were living on the edge, occupying a ground-floor apartment, but beggars couldn’t be choosers. We’d needed to find a place to live quickly, and the first floor was all that had been available. Our windows faced the well-lit parking lot, so at least there wouldn’t be pervs lurking in our nonexistent bushes, trying to sneak a peek.
At fourteen, the tall, imposing building had intimidated me. Back then, I’d played it cool around my friends, never admitting to my insecurities. That wasn’t done in my crowd. Admitting a weakness would get you trampled.
