*Bethany Rose Woodsmall is the middle daughter of George and Juliana Woodsmall. Following the tradition of her older sister Carolyn, Bethany receives and writes in a diary that she was given on her 13th birthday.

She considers her family to be her best friends especially her sisters, Carolyn and Laura.
