Of course, in such an atmosphere, life is fun and cheerful - up to some kind of a turning point. And here he comes for the main character: childhood ends, hopelessly remaining in the past, and in its place it takes time to go its own way and learn to interact with the world around. But it turns out that all this time, spent in a cozy glass castle with her parents, did not work for the girl. Unable to put up with this, she throws everything and goes to New York.
