1: I would like to dedicate this page to my mom. She has stuck with me through all of the tough times we have been through. | Dedication Page

2: Entry 1: RIP Dad , my beloved father has just past away and times are tough. Mom is not making enough money for us to keep our house. She said that we might have to move into the foster home in town. Through these tough times mom and i are sticking together and she is working hard to make money. The only person who is helping me through this right now is my mom. "Its okay Arielle we'll be back on our feet soon." My mom(Page 1)

4: Entry 2:: Today i went into school early today and i saw a boy, Osrick Wardley, getting bullied. His clothes were in the pool and kids were videotaping him get hit and beaten. I'm not sure if i should tell me teacher. I went and talked to Osrick about it and he said that he would go to tell an adult. He eventually did and the bulllies got into trouble. "What is wrong with you? Let him go!" me (page 3)

6: Entry 3: It's official i do not like my step-dad! He makes me and my mom keep records of everything that we do or buy. I cant even go shopping with my friends, i cant be a normal girl, because of him. This is emotionally draining but Chad is out of our lives now that he has left me and my mother. Times are tough now but its better than being with that monster. If it was not for my mom and friends i would be a wreck. "I hate this mom" me(page 31)

8: Entry 4: This year in school isn't starting to good. All of the girls give me the cold shoulder and all of the guys are already together with a girl. I'm all alone. I don't blame any of them though, i have been mean to every single one of them. Eventually they gave me a second chance and i realized that i had to change how i acted to have true friends in school. "It's senior year and I'm going to be home playing scrabble with my mother, instead of going to prom" me(page 54)

10: Entry 5 : School keeps getting worse by the day. Now there is someone stealing girl's belongings out of the locker room. I went to the principle, Mrs. Sherman, with some other girls but there was nothing that she was allowed to do with no evidence or witnesses. This was physical survival for all of the victims. My friends helped me through this and they found Mrs. Pringle guilty. "And unless there are witnesses, there is nothing i can do right now." Mrs Sherman (page 66)

12: Entry 6: My mom's brand new red mercedes is wrecked now. A sweet old lady backed into the car Chad had given her. Chad is going to be so mad and ill be the one he takes that anger out on. Me and my mom have helped eachother true this time. I can say that i have physically and emotionally survived this time. " I think he's a wack job, mom. He's not normal. When I'm around him i feel like all the air has been sucked out of me and i cant breathe." me(page 81)

14: Entry 7: I wish my mom would just leave Chad. Today he gave me a hard time about getting a score card to a department store. He was so mad he was going to take my IPhone away. Thats when I finally told him about my my phone being stolen during school. After that he goes on this long rant about how i disrespected his name and credit store. It was heaven when mom came home. "I'm suspending the use of your IPhone for 2 weeks." Chad (page 94)

16: Entry 8 : Today while I was on the bus everyone was passing around a phone with a video on it.One by one they would watch the video and laugh as if it was the funniest thing they've ever seen. I knew that the video was of Osrick and it disgusted me that they thought it was funny. It made the moment even worse that Osrick was on the bus listening to the whole thing. I didn't have the courage to stand up for him though. Olivia did though. "How would you like it if you were being embarrassed ? You think it feels good?" Olivia(page 107)

18: Entry 9 : School is getting back to normal. All of my friends are starting to accept me more. Now I'm eating lunch with them and we are talking all the time. I am really starting to understand that i never got to know my friends that well. For example i thought Olivia is weird but now i think that she is the most interesting person in the world. I really underestimated her. "Did you hear the latest?" November gossiped to me(page 106)

20: Entry 10 : Today was the worst day I have had in a long time. I came home to work on a project with Dana and Kofi. When we walked in the door i broke down. Everything in our big house was gone. The carpets, pictures, computer, everything! I knew what happened. Chad left my mom and I. He left us nothing absolutely nothing. I called my mom and we had to go pick her up because he took her car, while she was at work. My mom and I moved into a shelter and things started to get better.

21: " I bet Chad took it, mom. He took everything else. Why would he leave you with the car?" me(page 188)
