The Story Behind The Story, “Superpower” by Mary Malhotra

posted by

When I’m not writing, I tutor students who have to stay home from school for weeks at a time for health reasons. I empathize with how hard it is when they go back to school. In junior high, I was absent for three weeks after a tonsillectomy, and I felt like the whole school was talking about me and judging me when I came back. I had to wonder, how much worse would it have been if I had actually done something to cause my own absence, something terrible I couldn’t forgive myself for?
