    What Did I Do?

    Is Abandonment Genetic?

    Obviously, as children my sister and I rarely got along. I was the youngest. I, of course, did my share of picking. She printed off my diary for my parents, went through my purse, and hacked into my email. We were never the greatest of friends, even when she finally left for...
