"You've gotten used to them," Casey replied. "They should stop you feeling so anxious about being a girl."
"I know deep down that I don't want to be a girl," Maddie admitted. "But I don't seem to be able to fight it. It's so simple to just carry on."

"I guess not," Maddie shrugged and concentrated on her eyeliner.
