Struggling like many 15 year olds do, I’d thought I’d write my story. I don’t think the Nader family was ever a normal family, if there is such a thing. My father is an officer in the army and we are constantly moving from one place to another. We are currently stationed in Germany, where I attend school with the other army kids.

But life at home is not peachy and wasn’t for many years. Dinner was a 6:00 on the dot and if either my sister or I was not present, my father would come looking for us. He was strict but not abusive, however he would fight with my mother a lot. My sister is in her own world and I it was always hard to connect with her.

So my story begins.
