“I want peridot to show that you can be hyperactive, obsessive, anxious, struggle with social situations, and have weird rituals and ideas, but in the end, still be loved and have the capability to love if you are honest and open.”
I feel like, if I were still 10, I’d be so enthralled with Peridot. I still love her now, but I was so much like her as a child. I would have felt even more of a connection to her than I do now. I’m just glad someone like her in something like SU exists now, so that people who ARE 10 and all that can see someone like themselves making friends and being loved by them.
Also, Rebecca talks about growing up Jewish for a little bit there, which was interesting to read.
