â€œNobodyâ€™s here, and itâ€™s almost 10:00,â€ Dana looked around the empty lobby. â€œAre you Â sure the meetingâ€™s at 10:00?â€
â€œThatâ€™s what the notice said. Maybe everyone is in the auditorium,â€ Sam said. â€œLetâ€™s goÂ in.â€
â€œYouâ€™re sure the flyer said Friday?â€ Dana looked around the empty room.
â€œItâ€™s after 10:00 and I still donâ€™tâ€¦â€ Dana stopped mid-sentence when a man walked ontoÂ the stage.
â€œWelcome to the meeting of Children from Functional Families,â€ said the moderator.
