Mim Malone to the principals office! Mim Malone please report to the principals office!
"What was Mim's mom's name?" "Eve. She has a terrible disease." "Good thing she has a mother figure like Kathy."
These are the characters that we are first introduced to. There isn't really an ex[position of the story so this is all the info that we have.
The story first starts with Mim at school being called to the principals office. She is nervous because she isn't sure what is going on.
We're sorry, the number you have dialed has been disconnected
When she gets to the office she is told to head back to the principal and that he is expecting her. She stops outside the door and hears her dad, Kathy, and the principal talking about her mom from inside the office. She learns that her mom is in Cleveland
Mim is very upset. She had no idea that her mom was sick. She leaves the school and walks to her house.
Once she is to her house, not a home, she calls her mom. Her number is disconnected, just like it has been.
As soon as Mim get's inside, she heads straight to her room and backs up a bag. She steals some cash from Kathy's secret stash and heads to a Greyhound station.
