If you want more info about "Show Days" or why I'm doing this, you can find that here.
So today's example is from the book Slammed. (If you like my PG-13 book reviews, I loved this one but I wouldn't read this author beyond this series).

Long enough that my nine-year-old brother, Kel, doesn't cry every time we talk about him, but recent enough that we're being forced to accept the financial aftermath that comes to a newly single parented household.

You get a lot of information in these two paragraphs. You know that the narrator must be a young person, she's moving out of state, away from the only home she's ever known. And you get a sense of the emotional impact the father's death had on the family.
