The 29th story in the Falling Into College series by Richard Lobinske. The story occurs from late August to early September, 2000.
The story begins with Karen with her arm in a cast from a horse kick as visits the grave of Laura, a high school friend who died of an eating disorder. Her parents, Geoff and Maddie, are introduced. With her light truck loaded, Karen leaves for Boston. To avoid the cost of a hotel, she stays with Jake and Helen overnight. Karen arrives at the apartment safely and soon Derek and Michael are recruited to help unload her truck. After a joke from Derek and Michael falls flat, Jane feels a little left out, relationship-wise. Recovering, she suggests a beach trip before school starts. They all agree and CC also joins them
