We all went to the same school Ė a private, secular Jewish day school founded by Ben and aliís maternal grandfather Ė but we werenít the same age. Ali is six years older than Ben and Iím between them, so it felt more like siblings, since you donít usually play with kids who arenít your age unless itís family. Summers, our parents and their friends rented lakeside cottages in the mountains an hour away. The dads worked in the city all week and drove up on Friday night to spend the weekend. It was the 1950s.
