An awkward problem for a teenager - Elf M. Sternberg
An awkward problem for a teenager
Kouryou-chan has this class assignment: "Write a letter to your state representatives about an issue you feel strongly about." Kouryou-chan, for whatever reason, followed her sister in wanting to discuss teenage homelessness.

But she had a problem. She complained to the teacher, "I don't know how to write this in the formal language I'm supposed to use. It's really hard."

"Why?" said the teacher.

"Because I know Tina and Dave. Like, personally. My Mom's the chairperson for our district. I campaigned for Tina last year, and Dave invites us to barbecues once in a while. It just feels weird writing to them this way!"
