Chapter 1
The Day That my Life Became A Nightmare
(Two Weeks Before Moving Day, Monday)

Kill. Me. Now. I’ve always wanted to go VISIT Japan, I never said that I wanted to LIVE there…Okay, maybe I did, but that was because I didn’t think it would actually happen! I couldn’t get that through to my parents; feel free to take a whack at it yourself. They tend to ignore what I say at times, and this is defiantly one of those times.
“I can’t believe that you’re moving to JAPAN. Of all of the places you could have moved, you’re moving half way across the world from all of us!” One of my best friends, Alison, complains as we’re going to the girl’s locker room after gym.
“Couldn’t you guys at least stay in the country? Or take me with you?!” she asks.
“Try telling that to my parents. They think that just moving away from the school district isn’t enough of the “different environment” that everyone thinks that my brother and I need so badly. Sorry Alison, as much as I wish I could take you, I can’t. You’d never be able to stay hidden in the luggage area.” I answer her. Knowing her, when she says “Take me with you” she means “Stow me away in your suitcase so I can go, ‘cause it’s not going to be able to happen otherwise.”
As for the “new environment” thing, my brother has ADHD. That’s why he needs help. My parents think that getting away from the craziness of America will help get him to calm down more. Yeah, like that’s going to help. As for me, I need help because…well, don’t ask me. The only reason I can think of, is that I talk to myself when no one’s there. Okay, I can see why I need help. But how is forcing me to move half way around the world, away from all of my friends and family, with hardly any of visiting with them, going to help me? If anything, it’s more likely to just make that problem worse.
“How’s Trevor taking this?” she asks.
“Oh, he loves the idea, but he doesn’t understand that we probably won’t be coming back. But knowing him, he’s going to hate the idea by the time we get off of the bus tonight.” I reply, rolling my eyes. This was going to suck, big time.

Lunchtime, I’ve just finished telling everyone else about the move. Ally, Jazz, Shana, Kat, Matt, and Madi are all giving me pitiful, sad, ‘my-puppy-just-got-hit-by-a-car-and-I-saw-the-whole-thing’, looks. Zack and Damian look so happy, that they look like they could explode with happiness at any second. I am definitely, not going to miss those two, not at all. That’s one of the few bright sides to this. I never have to see their faces again.
“Are you kidding me? You have to be joking…right Bethany?” Ally asks, thinking that I’m just trying to trick them. I give her a sad, ‘I’m-sorry-I-ran-over-your-puppy.’ glance, and shake my head. She, and everyone but Zack and Damian, look like they’re about to cry. Zack and Damian look like they wish I was leaving today, and not at the end of March. Yep, not going to miss those two at all.
I barely even touch what is likely to be my last lunch at this school. I’ve lost my appetite. To tell the truth, I didn’t have much of one to start with. I’m still taking all of this in; after all, I just found out that I’m moving today. It’s official, I hate Mondays.
