Chapter Two

Starting Over

Have you ever gone to sleep but knew you were dreaming, and you just kept telling yourself to wake up but your brain wouldn’t cooperate? Or have you ever looked at what you did and what you should have done, and kick yourself in the ass because now you were in a fix you couldn’t get out of? What about knowing you had somehow managed to obliviously break every scientific law known to man and now you were lost in a place you knew nothing about? I believe I’ve thought and compared every excuse I know within five seconds and still came up blank.

Chapter One


It's not like I asked to move to Germany... I would've done just fine living with Bobbi and her family; they were practically family, anyway. The only time I’ve ever met Aunt Monika and Grandma Adeline was the Christmas after I turned six. These people are strangers to me. Why am I letting my parents send me away? Then again, when was the last time they listened to me, anyway? I guess getting expelled from school gives any parent a reason to stop listening.
