Ruby is a lot younger than me; I was eleven when she was born, but the age gap has never bothered me. I was happy as an only child. I never understood when my friends complained about their annoying siblings. Ruby was like my mini friend. I was in the mindset now that this was going to be a great change.
I wanted to join the hockey team and the swimming squad, meet people I could go to parties with, the movies, all that sort of stuff. When the time came to say goodbye insecurity overwhelmed me again and I clung to my friend Jake.
I buried my face in his flannel shirt. He had that unmistakable warm, earthy smell of horses mixed with the sweetness of freshly cut hay.
But it was easy to be brave and adventurous when there was no opportunity to put it into action. In the milking shed, listening to the milk squirting into the metal drums, everything seemed more appealing. Ruby was in her booster seat reading her nursery rhyme book upside down.
I nodded and took a deep breath. We both knew that would never happen. I was going, for good, and it would just have to be wonderful. Bye, bye Grace Point , I waved out the window as we joined the stream of traffic heading north.
To Perth. The new school had a strict uniform: The guys wore the same, except for the skirt of course; they had to wear navy trousers. It was really different from the relaxed uniform at my country school, which was more a dress code, not enforced at all; this was mature looking. I really felt like things were changing when I put it on. It was like I was leaving the old me, the boring country girl, behind and becoming someone new.
It seemed to hold out the opportunity to be anyone I wanted. The night before school started I looked at it lying on the end of my bed like a flattened person and I was excited.
At breakfast I felt really sick. Looking at my bran flakes floating in a puddle of milk made me want to puke. Around me the timber and granite kitchen was still piled ceiling high with unpacked boxes of cups and plates and stainless steel appliances. The smell made me feel like retching.
Ruby looked up from where she was kneeling on the kitchen chair, porridge in her wispy blonde hair and hanging off the end of her nose, and responded by flicking globs of it at Mum.

In a way Mum was right. We were all going to new schools. It was a small mercy that neither Mum nor Dad was at my new school. Dad drove me to school.
We got there early and sat in the car watching the students arriving. They all looked so neat and professional. Not like at Grace Point where the kids tied surfie jumpers around their waists and the girls wore mini skirts, or jeans, in school colours.
These students looked practically adult. Perfectly manicured lawns separated the buildings, with their names — English, Maths, Humanities — displayed on the portico entrances. Each building was surrounded by rose gardens, whose perfume we could smell from the car. Tall, leafy, light green trees shaded the lawns. On one side of the grounds there were netball courts and playing fields and on the other was an enormous two-storey building labelled Administration.
It was a far cry from my country school, which catered for pre-primary to Year Twelve: My stomach gurgled like a washing machine. I felt his eyes on my face, so I turned to him, swallowing my anxiety and trying to be brave. Fitting in had never been a problem before, what was I scared of?
