Holly from Olive's Ocean, is Martha's (the protagonist) best friend. When Olive dies the discuss the fact that they both never really knew her that well. Martha wishes that they'd taken the time to get to know her and be nicer to her. Holly is very pragmatic and states that they were never mean to Olive, just distant. Martha wonders if that isn't just the same as being 'mean'.
