I am reading that summer by Sarah Dessen which was about a girl named Haven who is 15 and everything seems to be going wrong in her life. There was one scene in the book that I think was the turning point in the book. “Do what?” I said “Go to your father’s wedding” my mother said. “Lorna sent me an invitation.” I found this really interesting and I don’t understand why Lorna invited the kid’s mom to the wedding. This is because the father cheated on the kid’s mom with Lorna also known as the weather pet because the father and Lorna work together for channel 5 news. The father Mac is the sports anchor and Lorna is the meteorologist. I believe this was the turning point so far because if the mother would have gone to the wedding she could have spoken up when the pastor asked if there were any last words. Then she could have told the father how she really felt and that she wanted him back and maybe they could work things out. I think the father would have came back and this would of changed the whole book I don’t know which way would be better because if the father would have came back his old house is all filled with stress and probably wouldn’t have been the best time to come back. Havens house is filled with stress because her sister Ashley is getting married in August which is two months away to Lewis. This is really hard for Haven because even though her and her sister argue a lot they are still close and once the wedding comes Ashley will be moving out.

I have just finished reading That Summer by Sarah Dessen. For my genre piece, I wrote a character journal that shows all of Havens problems. Through my Journal you will understand that Haven was having a hard summer with all the weddings.
Today is my father’s wedding and I’m not too excited about it. He’s marrying Lorna also known as the weather pet she’s not my mother’s favorite person since she was the one that broke up their marriage. It’s really hard for my mom because my dad cheated on her with Lorna and decided to tell her last year now today is the wedding day. I’m a bridesmaid along with my sister and Lorna’s sister. My mom got an invitation to the wedding she isn’t going to go though I can’t blame her I wouldn’t either I don’t even want to go but I guess I will just smile and get it over with.
I got a summer job at little feet it’s not the best job but its money. But the best part of the day is I get to see Sumner, I haven’t seen him in a long time. He is one of my many sisters ex boyfriends I don’t remember most of their names because there is too much but Sumner was different. Sumner was really nice to me and made me and my sister get along. My dad and I saw him when we went to are Thursday night dinners at a pizza place last week. He also has another job as a mall security man at the mall so I get to see him all the time! He always seems to have the right thing to say to calm me down through this horrible summer.
Yesterday I got my dress fitted to be a bridesmaid again for the second time this summer. While Ashley my sister was getting her dress fitted my mom and I went out to lunch to talk about what will happen after. My mom talked about selling the house and moving somewhere smaller but I don’t want to. Today is my sisters wedding day me and my sister had a talk about how we would miss each other even though we fight I am going to miss her I like Lewis so its not to bad I will just miss her. The worst thing just happened I found out Lorna my dads wife is pregnant.
