Macie is a very generous person. She is very sweet, charitable and selfless. Her dad has a low salary and his paycheck and must support both of his daughters so they are part of the lower-middle class. Macie is incredibly responsible. Aside from those qualities she is cool, loving, accepting, open-minded, and she has good leadership skills.
*Chapter Prologue*
My name is Macie and I was fifteen years old when I proved I had grrrl power. I lived in a small town that you probably would not ever hear of unless you had a relative there or you had a specific reason to be there. My parents decided to move there before my mom died because they had a good school with a good special needs program for kids. My little sister Allison was diagnosed with autism and then dyslexia when she got farther into school. As you can imagine taking care of a child with special needs is a lot of work and my dad worked a lot so I had to take care of my sister by myself since my older sister Alexis joined the marines.
