She changed her name at 14 after learning that there were a total of 16 girls named Amber at her new school. Ember is the epitome of individualism- right down to the “having no friends but her twin sister” part. She’s a righteous Wiccan who goes to yoga class and heavy-metal concerts alike. Back in Memphis she took college courses in psychology and smoked a lot of weed- two of the reasons for the fancy prep school she and I will now be attending for our junior year. She may be weird, but Em is my best friend in the world and she always will be. Except maybe when her feet are in my lap.
