No sorry, Carley doesn't have a secret diary, but I am making one for her. This is Carley's Diary in my opinion.
Dear Diary, Carley here,
Here's my plan I will get Dennis so mad he will hit me, mom will get mad and kick Dennis out of the house (boy do I hate Dennis). Mom's coming home report soon
Well that didn't work, I was dribbling and my mom went to get the ball with my amazing skills i dodged her and she fell on the floor, then she yelped and of course Dennis came out and I started saying mean things, he started chasing me and with my amazing skills I dodged him to, but then mom started sorta crying and she said "Carley" I said of course "mom whats wrong" I walked toward her and I felt a hand gripping my foot, Dennis I got her. Now I'm in a car with this women named Mrs. Macavoy, Foster parents I repeat Foster parents I am going to a foster home I don't want to go, I will not go, she is treating me like a kid giving me a book and a stuffy althogh I do appreciate my giraffe stuffy because that is all I have right now. Getting out of the car wish me luck.
So I am in a room with fire trucks and... more firetrucks and micheal eric walks in and wants my special giraffe and he decided to named it Mr. Longneck, Mrs. Murphy is always studying me, I don't belong here.
I'm back I just finished playing basketball on the driveway, Mrs. Murphy seriously thinks me and daniel will get along, boy is she wrong, that kid hates me, so today I tested god I told him if I make a basket that means my mother loves me. It gets stuck between the hoop and basket.. that must mean something.
Carley has had a big character change she had attitude and didn't like the Murphy's at all what so ever, times change things happened all of a sudden she finds connections, Daniel likes basketball, Mrs. Murphy is a girl, these connections bring them closer together. Now Carley is helpful kind loving playful and most important happy.
Carley had obstacles and lots of them, two obstacles are talking to Toni and warming up to Daniel. Now it may not be hard to talk to a friend (Toni) but when she knows you lied to her once she's told you everything... it's not so easy anymore. Carley told Toni that she had a great mom and dad and three brothers but didn't tell her that the mother Toni has met is not Carley's biological Mom but Carley's foster mom. Toni gets jealous of Carley's mom, but she doesn't know that Carley has been lying to her face about the mother both of them dreamed of. Now daniel just doesn't like Carley for about... no reason at all. Carley was mean at first until she found a connection they both like... Basketball. She knew he was doing tryouts, She assumed he was the best player on the team, plot twist, he is one of the worst. She still helped him which would be hard since he is so mean. Carley must feel sad that Daniel is not nice still after she helps Daniel, but good that she has so much perseverance.
The three questions I want answered in my Skype are:
I wonder why:
A book summary in a picture
Overall this book is great. Not for Carley but good to read. She has to go to the Murphy's and her mom is in the hospital. There is pain and change that is so hard to adapt to. Life is not and will not be fun for a while. Her flashback would be so painful she must keep telling herself her mom didn't help Dennis to hurt Carley.
WHAT she helped!!!Yes her mother grabbed her foot and said Dennis I have her. Thats sad that would hurt I can
Carley is running away because she feels that no one likes her. Thats tough, she is running on the gravel bare foot pain stinging and she has a flash back of her plan to get rid of Dennis. Her plan: to get Dennis mad enough for him to hit her and then her mom will get mad and kick him out. She doesn't like Dennis because he abuses her mother. Her mother came home from drinking vodka while Carley was dribbling with the ball and of course that isn't aloud but who does what there told in that house her mom goes to grab the ball and obviously Carley dodges it her mom falls on the floor and is in did something to her leg. Dennis comes out and nows the time for her plan, getting him angry saying mean things and her mom says "Carley" in that whining hurting way and Carley walks up and assumes her leg is just in pain and her mom grabs her foot and says......
Dennis I've got her foot. Now thats a cliff hanger.
