Text to Self- About three years ago I had surgery and I remember being in the hospital just like Lexi was. It wasn't as bad as Lexi was but I was still in a lot of pain. It was weird knowing the stuff that goes on in your body.
Text to World- Everyday in every city a car accident happens. In the book Lexi gets in a car accident head on to a tree. When I was younger I remember a car accident that happened right on in front of my eyes.
Text to self- When Lexi and Taylor stopped becoming friends it reminds me of when me and my best friend had stopped talking even though we loved each other and cared about each other a lot. It was stupid and I regret it because now to this day we barely talk anymore.
Text to Text- In the newspaper they show many car accidents that happen. It's sad to see how many people have died.
Text to Self- Lexi had went to a dance and it reminded me of homecoming. I could relate to the people that were having a good time.
