Raina and her mom, sister, and brother were driving from California to Colorado for a family reunion. The only problem was that Raina and her sister, Amara, hardly ever got along.
MOM! I need colored pencils!
Hey, Mom? Have you seen my Walkman?
ONE MINUTE, GIRLS! WHERE IS YOUR BROTHER?
When they were in the car, Raina's family drove her crazy. Amara kept reading aloud random facts, and her brother kept making truck noises with his cars.
Now we're in Nevada, the Silver State! More like the brown state! HA!
NEEEEOOOWW! KCHH! KCHH!
When they got to the reunion, however, Raina and Amara learned that neither of them fit in very much with their cousins.
Even Will is getting along with everyone.
I used to wish Lindsay was my sister, but now it's like she doesn't even know me.
After the reunion, Raina and her family were crossing through New Mexico when all of a sudden the car sputtered and died. The damage was worse than just a dead battery - they needed a mechanic. Raina's mom took Will with her and left the two girls in the car.
The girls were having a discussion about their parent's relationship, which wasn't doing too well, when all of a sudden, they saw something move. It was Mango, Amara's lost pet snake (which Raina was terrified of).
AAAAHHHHH! AMARA! YOUR SNAKE!!!
They worked together to capture Mango in a grocery bag and waited for their mom to get back with the tow truck. When she did come, they drove home safely and lived happily ever after.
