The time when Spiderman made me cry.

So a few days back I was watching ‘The Amazing Spiderman 2’. I watched it before like 2 or 3 times but something or the other would happen and I would never make it till the end of the movie.

All through the book, there are also instances where Katy remembers her mother from time to time when she feels like she needs her guidance.
