Rebel is in the car with her sister and nephew. Rebel is looking out the window at her new "neighborhood." She realizes that it is not an apartment she is going to be living in, but a trailer.
Whenever Rebel arrives to her new home, her sister shows her around. Rebel then notices she does not get her own room and has to share one with her seven year old cousin.
Rebel enters the so called "kitchen," and is a little upset whenever she notices that for dinner she has to eat hotdog spaghetti. Hot dog spaghetti is simply spaghetti with cut up hotdogs mixed in it. This is a significant scene in the novel because it explains Rebel's first impression in her new home that she will be spending the whole summer in.
