And she had three pierced earrings in each ear. They were all silver and dangly, but none matched.
  • She was wearing a puffy white peasant blouse, a blue-jean jacket, a long blue-jean skirt, and those hiking boots again. Beaded bracelets circled both wrists, and she’d tied a strip of faded denim around her head, like an Indian headband.
