When my sister and I got on the plane to South Carolina at the beginning of March break, we could feel the warm weather. Well, not really seeing as it was only 40 degrees at Logan Airport, and we were bundled up in long sleeves and pants. My sister and I were happy to get out of the bad weather in Boston and into the 80 degree weather of South Carolina. The plane ride was about an hour and not much to do, So we ate the salty snacks and the drinks, and we bought some things at the vendors before we boarded. When the plane landed in the Savannah airport, we could already tell that it was warm outside. Once we got our luggage and rented a car, we were on our way to seeing my grandparents who had moved there recently.

When the plane landed in the Savannah airport, we could already tell that it was warm outside. Once we got our luggage and rented a car, we were on our way to seeing my grandparents who had moved there recently. We had never seen their house, and it was in a old folks community. They were right on the par three 8th, and I must have played that hole 20 times. Seeing them was great, after not seeing them for a long time, but we all missed their house in New Hampshire. My favorite part of South Carolina was that every other store had to do with golf. The portion sizes were huge, and extremely unhealthy. At one resturaunt, there was a 3 pound burger served with fries and fried pickles. Once it was time to go after one more unreasonable meal, we hugged and said goodbye.
"Books Are Uniquely Portable Magic."-Stephen King
Tom Sawyer is an action packed and exciting book by Mark Twain. Tom is a crafty and witty character, who is afraid of nothing. He can always seem to get out of trouble, no matter the circumstances. His aunt says that she will beat him, But Tom always seems to get out of it by tricking her. He skips school and when his aunt asks what he did, he has to make things up. He fights boys, one on one, and in pretend wars, where a gang of boys fights another gang. They then count up the "dead" to see who wins, and plan for the date of the next battle.
Tom's aunt gives him plenty of chores around the house, but Tom tricks his friends into doing them for him. One example of this is in chapter two, when Tom tricks his friend Ben into whitewashing the fence by saying how great and fun it is. By then Ben is so intrigued by how fun Tom makes it seem, that he gives him his apple to do Tom's chores. Once Ben is done he gets some of his friends to do it as well, telling them how wonderful it was. By the end of the day, Tom has amassed an army of treasures for the right to whitewash the fence.
Not everything goes Tom's way. For instance, when he is walking he sees a little girl, and immediately falls for her. He then proceeds to show off for her so as to gain her affection, and later that night, sits under a window to wait for her to come out. The maid dumps the chamberpot remnants on his head, and Tom goes home dejected. His mischievous acts make you want to continue to read the book.
