On my sixteenth birthday mum and dad dropped a huge bombshell they told me I was being sent to deadwood academy. I'm a straight A student, I'm never in trouble, I babysit when asked, I work part time after school at a bookstore and now they want to pack me up and send me off to a boarding school six hours away. What have i done wrong to deserve this? don't they love me anymore? I honestly cant understand why they are doing this to me. I'm leaving all my friends and family behind and no matter how hard I protest my parents just say they don't want to speak about the matter. What kind of school uses the name deadwood anyway? Oh that's my new school in the middle of bloody nowhere. "It's ok violet calm down" I told myself as I walked out the door with my bags towards mum and dad waiting in the car.
