520    Struggling to hold on to Guy and love their pet gecko 
       enough for the both of them after a devastating accident, 
       Sussy begins stealing from the pet store. 
520    After a trip to the pet store, fourth-graders Sussy and 
       Guy bring home a spotted lizard, and they name her Matylda
       (with a 'y' so it's all her own). With Guy leading the way,
       they feed her and give her an origin story fit for a 
       warrior lizard. A few weeks later, on a simple bike ride, 
       there is a terrible accident. As hard as it is, Sussy is 
       sure she can hold on to Guy if she can find a way to love 
       Matylda enough. Eventually Sussy must discover what it 
       means to grieve and heal and hope and go on, for her own 
       sake and Matylda's.
