â€œLet's go back/ Back to the beginning/ Back to when the earth, the sun, the stars all alignedâ€¦â€
- Hilary Duff, â€œCome Clean,â€ 2003
This is Laguna Beach, California, a small town in Orange County. You may have heard of it. Itâ€™s a place I call home. Thatâ€™s me, Kristin. I just finished my senior year at Laguna Beach High School, and my friends and I ruled the school. This is my best friend Jessica. With our exes off at college, it was our year to hang out with some new boys. But of course we had some competition. Thatâ€™s Alex. Sheâ€™s a drama queen. No, really. When sheâ€™s not acting in the school plays, sheâ€™s making a play for Jessicaâ€™s boyfriend. Yeah, thatâ€™s right. And that brings us to Jason. Jason is Lagunaâ€™s very own bad boy. Iâ€™ve warned Jessica to watch out for him. Heâ€™s so hot but such a heartbreaker. I guess it takes one to know one! You all know who that is: Talan. Heâ€™s best friends with Jason. Those types always stick together. Talan really grew up this year, and I really noticed. But so did Alexâ€™s best friend, Taylor. Yeah, she may look all nice and innocent, but Iâ€™m not buying it. As long as those two stay out of my life, weâ€™ll be okay. Right, like that will happen. Oh, and speaking of staying out of my life, youâ€™re probably wondering what happened to Lauren, or â€œLC,â€ as her friends call her. Well, Lauren spent exactly one semester in San Francisco with Stephen before she bailed. I call that the day she left. She thought it was her chance to finally get Stephen. Uh, yeah right. I guess things didnâ€™t end up happily ever after. How could they? I mean, Stephen called me almost everyday. As for me, I was having the time of my life. But last yearâ€™s seniors were coming back for Christmas break,and I had to tell Stephen I moved on. I mean, I felt bad. But I wasnâ€™t going to let anything ruin my senior year.
