Janice Coraopolis was the girl that everyone liked She was pretty, which is more important to some people than to others. She was intelligent, which was more important other people than it is to others. She was unceasingly kind which is important to just about everyone.
She was authentic as Louise would say. Her kindness seemed to have no agenda. It just was. She wasn’t the most popular girl at General John G. Pershing Elementary School, but she was easily the most well-liked by those who knew her.
Her parents ran the Sweet Stop – a candy store near the train station. The irony of their choices wasn’t lost on anyone.
Janice was on her own path – with little to distract her – until that first tug on her heart.
