Jacque, what a great point about the difference between feeling and feeling sorry.

The muddy narration really made it hard for me to experience this as more than a news story (such a great analogy). Obviously the author wanted to use that sort-of omniscience to withhold information but the story would have been better served for her to abandon that effort and truly tell (or, rather, show!) Kya’s story.
