I have it very close to hand, but I'm not sure when there might be a
for being a hero at the end.  Do you mean the scene in the garden or
before, when
Polly's trying to figure out what to do?


Thank goodness for public libraries. I looked up the quote while I was
there and it isn't really a definition--I didn't quite remember it
correctly--but it is near the end.  Polly remembers something Tom told her
before, that "being a hero means ignoring how silly you feel."  It occurs
when Polly is remebering how Laurel embarrasses her inot saying she will
forget Tom.  Thanks for the offer, Hallie.
