Hello there Every session of eighth-grade social studies at Newtown Junior High was another chance for Justin, whose family had moved from Lower Moreland to Richboro the previous year, and Erica, who had lived in Newtown all her life, to talk. But after school, his most important friendships remained those he'd made in Lower Moreland.

Hello there Rachel hadn't planned on going out that mid-January night in 2012, but girlfriends Meredith and Casey persuaded her with the news that Rob, whom they'd all known since their summers at Camp Nock-A-Mixon, was coming.
