Creating a story between two people who are completely different always makes for something quite beautiful. “Loose Change” made me think about how different things are, especially in a country and culture completely different from my own. The narrator is a classic example of a western woman experiencing what I can only think of as extreme culture shock. I quite enjoyed the detail in the dialogue, and the close attention to each time the girl surprised the narrator. The abrupt ending was especially moving, as it painted a sadly realistic picture of the pain and ignorance our society faces each day.
