How I could Relate: Around the time I got interested into reading this book I was going to a new school just like Autumn Falls.I was entering my worst nightmare high school.I was the awkward outsider who was a loner too.But could make friends as long as I tried and found the right group of friends to hang out with.My new chapter in my life was no easy rollercoaster I was shy and did not let anyone in.To top all the stress and anxiety of going somewhere new I had a learning disability with math just like Autumn.That was not the only big bump in the road my grandmother died part way through the school year.With me having to find ways to deal with my feelings of loss and how to go to school with caring these such hurt and excruciating feelings.Worst feelings I ever had and worst situation my family ever to go through.Navigating teen life was hard enough until you find out the smart kid in your history class had a crush on you since the school year began but never told you and he acted so weirdly awkward around me to the point it was creepy.I did not know how to handle someone crushing on me for none ever had before.had gotten onto the wrong side of life in school too I took in all the negative anyone said and took all the negative I had going on at home and lashed out at school and was stubborn to get help and had low confidence that I could do well my grades slipped.Trying to juggle my extremely stressful home life,having a learning disability,trying to make some sort of friends,deal with feelings of loss and someone who had a crush on me.Could lashing out and fighting against all the positive was that really going to make my life any better or any easier?No it did not it only made matters worse.
