Carly's blog is the fictitious representation of a character's life in the year prior to the story depicted in the novel
I was thinking today about how much I'd like to get out of town and go ona vacation. Most of my friends have done something this summer, but not me.
I know it's not going to happen, but all my wishing for a trip made me remember about the one time I did go on vacation. My aunt and uncle took me with their family to the beach. Even though I spent a lot of time on my own, it was a special time. I did a lot of thinking while I stared at the ocean and watched for dolphins. I was 13 years old, and it seems like I knew a lot more about what I wanted back then. Was it the vacation away from home? Maybe it was because I was away from the trouble in my house and wasn't upset while I was there.
I felt strong and happy, but now that face makes me sad. The best time I remember in my life didn't take place when I was with my folks, but when I got away from them.
