Delia's Crossing (The Delia Series)

"I want to believe the best about my son. Your children are a big reflection on you. You get blamed for everything they say and do. But I know peer pressure is usually stronger than parental pressure. You're alway judged by the friends you keep. Don't firget that. It's especially true in the circles I'm in. Everyone is eager to cast the first stone, and believe mem no one is without sin."

~Delia's Crossing; VC Andrews

  27. Wise observations about parents and their children. I look at your selection and wonder what Delia's "crossing" actually was--big decision? life event?
