—Diana, ésta es nuestra casa y nosotros ponemos las reglas. ¡Si te decimos que tienes que estar de regreso a las nueve, ésa es la hora de entrar por la puerta! No hay nada más que hablar —gritó.
Su casa, no li mía, pensé. Por un momento me ardieron los ojos y pensé que iba a llorar, pero logré controlarme, sonreí y dije bajito mirándolo a los ojos:
   —Trata de oligarme.

Dime tiene 15 años y siempre está enojada. Sus padres no la comprenden y su hermano quedó paralizado por un accidente. Cuando las peleas y las acusaciones la sobrepasan, Dime se muda con su hermano. Pero los problemas la siguen. Si Dime no entiende que debe comenzar a responsabilizarse de sus actos, nada va a cambiar.

Dime is fifteen and always angry. Her parents don't understand her, and her brother was paralyzed in an accident. When the fights and accusations become too much, Dime moves in with her brother. But her troubles follow her. Until she realizes that she has to start taking some responsibility, nothing will change.
