Summary: Moans 16 year old Jamie. Her parents have decided that the family should move to a bigger house in a better neighbourhood and Jamie hates the idea of leaving her friends and school. Also quietly unhappy is Rosa, Jamie's grandmother. The move will end her years of living in the house where she and her now departed husband Pedro raised their family.
