Isora “was my best friend i wanted to be like her,” but the narrator also wants to kiss her and “suck up isora’s head so I’d have her inside my body.During one oppressively hot summer, the 10-year-old narrator and her best friend Isoraexperience changes in their bodies and their volatile emotions — from love to jealousy, admiration,obsession and submission. It was, she reasoned, some mistake, a dud in the assembly line, but something about it felt special, auspicious. When the piercing power and sultry heat of the sun abate, and almighty Zeus sends the autumn rains, and men's flesh comes to feel far easier,—for then the star Sirius passes over the heads of men, who are born to misery, only a little while by day and takes greater share of night—then, when it showers its leaves to the ground and stops sprouting, the wood you cut with your axe is least liable to worm.
