I’m Alexia Wheaton.  I’m seventeen, and for seven years, I’ve lived with a terrible secret, a secret that can get me killed.  I even kept it from my best friend, my twin brother, Matt.  I saw the man who murdered my parents, and now, I’m living in constant fear that he will find me and kill me all because some stupid journalist overheard me talking to my friends and leaked the story in the local newspaper.  They all think I’m crazy because I believe he’ll keep his promise, but I know I’m not.  Because I’ve seen him.  He’s been stalking me.

3.  I have a lucky…

Streak.  Unfortunately, it’s bad luck.  It seems as if bad luck follows me around wherever I go. 

f    4.  If I was on the television show, ‘Survivor,’ I would be the one that…

Is the weak link. That is until I can’t take it any longer.  Eventually, I will fight back.
