    Their new house was smaller than their old one. However, Jana did not
    really mind sharing her room with Marie.
    Jana had her own room in the old house, but here she had to share
    one with her younger sister. What Jana did mind was leaving behind
    all her friends in the old neighborhood, which was too far away to visit
    more than a few times a year. All of her friends had promised to write,
    but she knew that would not be enough. She would not be able to visit
    them very often. Now she was expected to make new friends as if the
    old ones had never existed. The day they moved Jana refused to
    speak to her parents, though she knew that was not fair to them.
