Caitlin and what I learned
I liked Caitlin because she was a very interesting girl and she seemed to be fun to hang around. I also liked her because in the book it said she loves to draw and that she was good at it, so maybe she would be able to help me.
I learned that its not always easy to find closure and that it might take a while but you have to be patient for it to come to you.
