I can relate to Ashlyn Z. in ¡°Home Alone¡± because when I was little my parents left me home alone with my brother and sister but they ended up sleeping out at their friend¡¯s houses, so I was all by myself. I lived right next to a main road so there were a lot of cars. I can relate to the part when the car pulls into the driveway because when I was home a car pulled into my driveway with the headlights beaming into my house. I didn¡¯t know what to do. My parents wouldn¡¯t pick up their phones so I was on my own. The car sat there for a while just like in the story and it never moved. I hid in a corner hoping the car would leave, and it finally did.
