It seems a bit silly, even now, the idea that your life can be changed, simply because you read a book. That doesn’t seem like a normal things to happen to people, I mean most of the other kids in my class didn’t even do the reading. I did, I always did. I grew up in a town that no one would ever call Diverse, let alone multicultural. I grew up in a sea of white, welsh, cisgender, deeply Methodist, photocopies. They all looked, walked, and talked just like me; that never changed, and no one seemed to ever want to change; generation after generation.

Alrighty, a little backstory before we begin. One of my oldest friends of 10+ years (let's call her E) has always been an outsider. She's always had trouble relating to other people, has low self-esteem, is very judgemental, and holds more extreme views.
