When she confronted


[ she ] simply pretended not to care


When she confronted / faced / wrestled / dealt / imaged / pictured / came to grips with ... are all synonyms of confronted http://thesaurus.reference.com/browse/confront


Now if you add WAS, you change the meaning.


When she WAS confronted with the writing there - PASSIVE VOICE meaning that SOMEBODY ELSE confronted HER.


I passed it off as just in keeping with

her total disconcerting air


Is there a more natural way to convey the same meaning of the second underlined part?


Bread is a 70's band, so yeah, I believe there are more modern ways to say the same.
