Can you explain to me why there is so order of words in the sentence (from my book):
I'd been asking Mom for a year to let me go back to Ridgefield, our hometown in Illinois, and see my friends. No way was I going to let Ashley go back before me, so I was glad when Mom told her no, that she would miss too much school.
I think text in bold should be "No way I was going". Why reason to write in such order?
