When I started high school, I couldn't wait to get out of Dillon. I thought that every book I read was like a rung on a ladder that I built to escape this town that was all about high school football and nothing else. And now that I'm actually getting close to leaving, I'm starting to appreciate that I was shaped by my town...I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm surprised by how happy I am to be from where I'm from. Does that make any sense?

You might think this is Julie talking about Dillon but it's really me talking about Alliance.
