Summary: Major life events can change your mark, that’s what they say. “Bends in the road of life,” Bitty’s Mama tells him. “It means you have control over your own future,” is Jack’s father’s take.
Jack doesn’t think about his mark until it changes when Bitty goes down hard on the ice. Bitty can’t remember who any of them are and Jack’s mark now reads, “Who is he?”
Most memorable line: “When I first saw you, I thought you were so small.”
