Book Excerpt Chapter 2 part c

Stephanie pounded her fist on the vanity. Great! Just great! Look what I’ve done. She splashed cold water on her face hoping to calm her red, puffy eyes.
“Girls, we’ll be leaving in ten minutes,” her mother called from downstairs. “Coffee’s waiting on the bench, Steph.”
April leant on the door frame.
“What do you want? Go. Can’t you see I’m getting dressed?”
Stephanie wished her parents had allowed them a week to settle in instead of insisting they start their new school straight away. Her mother was so keen for them to start, she’d pre-ordered their uniforms.
“It’ll be okay, Steph,” April said.
“Get out!” What would a stupid ten-year-old know?
She closed the door in Aprils face, put on her new uniform and brushed her hair into a loose ponytail before heading downstairs.
As she grabbed the coffee cup from the kitchen bench, her school bag slipped off her shoulder, jerking her elbow. The entire cup splashed down the front of her blouse.
“AHHH!” She clenched her teeth, fighting against another fury of tears.
Her mother clicked her tongue over and over. “You have another uniform hanging in your wardrobe. Go and get changed. I’ll have to clean this up before we leave.”
She ran the bathroom tap and sponged the coffee off her arms and chest, now pink from the hot drink. She pulled on the clean blouse, stomped back down the stairs and climbed into the car.
“First stop, April’s school.” Her mother started the car.
St Maria’s co-ed primary school covered the majority of a low-lying flat block and the high school had been built nearby on the top of a hill. Attached, yet separated from the school was the parish church. Its steeple stood tall, keeping watch between the younger and older students.
“April, I’ll come in with you and make sure you’re okay,” Mum said.
“No, I’ll be right. They know I’m coming, don’t they?” April jumped out of the car and then turned back. “Ah, actually yeah, could you come?”
“I’ll be waiting here,” Stephanie said under her breath.
“Back soon.” Her mother swung the words over her shoulder.
