Good bye dollies?
Are they leaving? Why does this look like the cover to a Judy Blume book?
The Good-Bye Dollies
Amber, Sissy, Kara, Jen and Megan had always been the best of friends. They grew up together on the same block and lived, loved and laughed as only the best of friends could do. Life was a blissful carnival and all of them enjoyed the thrill of riding the ferris wheel of innocence until that fateful summer when the accident happened. Dreams were shattered, lives were lost, men were used and pills were taken all in an effort to live life to the fullest. In a few short weeks the carefree abandon of being a doll was wiped out by the grim reality of life in a box, on a shelf, in the ‘clearance toys’ aisle of their local Target store.
