My name is Libby.
I am 14 years old. I live in a small town in Queensland, Australia. My dad died when I was 7. I am moving in December.
At the moment, I feel alone. I am on holidays, staying at my beach house (which will sooon become my house of residence) away from my friends. But that is not really why I feel alone.

On Martin Luther King jr Day I remember the history of the struggle that he died for. And it is at those times that I am particularly thankful to my mother and father’s way of bringing me up. Even though my family is cacausian, and even though my parents were brought up with the idea of racism as natural my parents never balked at my impossible dream.
Me: “Mommy black people are beautiful.”
Mother: “They’re people Heather, the same as me and you.” She smiles down on her little…Continue

In which John Green sings a lullaby of his own devising about all the things he will buy his baby in the event a mockingbird fails to sing. These things include a quilt, the sultanate of Oman, a diamond ring, and polka dots, among many others. Stay tuned at the end for some serious…
