Topic: Keeping the moon- Sara Dessen

It is the start of summer and 15 year old Collie is being sent on a train to her aunties house who she hasn't seen in years, and hardly remembers her. Her mother Kiki Sparks is on a business trip. Her mom is a fitness instructor on TV. Collie and her mom used to be fat, until her mom got this sudden urge to go on a health cleanse. They now only eat certain food and work out everyday. Collie had issues with bullying when she was younger, so they moved around a lot. Every time there was an issue they would pack up and leave to another town. They had been all over the place, until they finally found their forever home, with Kiki's new fitness job.

The hippy guy approached her and asked if she was Collie. He introduced himself and gathered up her bags and then headed to Mira's.
