Topic: The geography of You and Me by:Jennifer E Smith
Lucy is 16-years-old and lives on the twenty-fourth floor of an apartment building in New York City, Lucy has lived in the building for her whole life with he bothers who were twins and two years older than her but had recently moved away to university. Once her brothers left it was just Lucy and her parent but her parents travelled around a lot and left her at home alone for weeks at a time. During the summer there was a change in the building she lived in, there was a and boy names Owen who lived in the basement with his father who is the new manager of the building. Lucy had only seen the boy and never talked to him before but got to when they were stuck inside an elevator between two floors after a city-wide blackout. They told each other things about themselves and kept talking until one of the building security people opened the elevator and saved them from the stuffy air of the elevator. Once they were saved from the elevator they headed back to there apartments but Owen ran up 3 flights of stairs to get to Lucy because she offered him a flashlight and he decided he wanted it last minute. Imagine being in a city-wide blackout today people would be going crazy if their phones died and they had no T.V!
