Moving to South Carolina

Last June, school had just got out for the summer. My parents had told me not to tell anyone that we would be moving soon because they wanted to tell everyone at the right time. Keeping a big secret like that was difficult for someone like me. All I could think about was how my friends would react to me telling them I was moving.

Moving somewhere else seemed unreal. A couple of days earlier my mom told me that my really close friend Garrison would be moving to Charleston as well. I felt so relieved that I would know at least one person through this big move. When we got all moved in I didn't like the feeling that it wasn't my home. As we unpacked the boxes and saw all the furniture getting moved in by the moving company it started gett...
