She shares in her diary and with you falling in love, hating her mother, hating her parents fighting, being afraid to grow up, being upset that they may move, loving the locket her aunt gives her and feeling loved in ways by her aunt that her parents can't seem to muster, wishing the boy she is in love with would grow taller, confronting her disappointment that she has no relationship with him, sharing her glee at having a best friend and confiding in each other, coming to terms with growing up, letting go of the her first love, getting ready to move and more. One can wonder not only what happens to her once they move, but who is the 'you' that she confides into. Is that 'you' a stranger, or a friend, or will her recording of her innermost thoughts just get wiped for another Selfie moment in her life?
