1 Samantha graduated from high school last year. Before she went to college, she took a summer job. She worked at a bookstore as a cashier. The hours were long, but the pay was good for summer work. She got discounts on all kinds of books, magazines, music, and games, too. She liked the job.
2 One day, Samantha had to close the store at 8:00 p.m. She and a coworker had to count all the money so Samantha could put it in a bag and take it to the bank.

3 But Samantha was wrong. On the way to her car, something terrible happened to her.
