In the big city of Pittsburghwe just cared about our small town of Northside.  

 My school had 200 students. I knew most of them because they were small-town people. We had gym class and played tennis and baseball. But my favorite sport was playing pool on the table we had at home.  

 We went on outings to the country and had PTA meetings in the evening just like a small-town school should. When I got home each day, I helped mom plant vegetables in the back yard like the small-town girl in her small-town world.
