Theme

Sometimes its best to let go and let others help. You don't have to handle everything on your own. Because sometimes if you do it would end up hurting you in the long run.

Important Event

Carey took her dad back to Obed Wild and Science River National Park "The Hundred Acre Woods" to tell him the reason why Jenessa stopped talking. And the whole time she was there she was nervous because this is the huge secret that she is hiding and it could also get her taken away from her sister. "My stomach slips sideways like skeeters across the creek, and it's more than the truth coming out."
