But ever the optimist, she pins her hopes on the possibilities that winter break will bring. Unfortunately, there's a cold breeze blowing in more ways than one, and Tomoko's in for a disappointment. Is she doomed to spend her theoretically monumental first year as an HSG without any friends at all?
