“Inside the Pink Room” by Olivia Stein is very relatable and touched my heart. In this short story fiction, Naomi has moved from New York City to a small town across the county to start a new life with her mother who has severe mental issues. In the story, Naomi meets a popular girl named Alexa. Naomi has been invited to a party but during the party Naomi is smothered by all her mother’s needs, and she doesn’t wasn’t that anymore. But, at the party, she finds out that Alexa has a mother who has problems just like Naomi’s mother. Although, the very next day at school, Alexa tells everyone about Naomi’s mom and everyone makes fun of her.
