Melinda Sordino, she is in her High School, Merryweather high, and she is also the narrator of the story. Andy Evans, he is an attractive senior, but with a bad reputation with girls. He raped Melinda at an end-of-summer party. Heather, she is a new girl at the school, she becomes friends with Melinda because she had no other friends. Turns out that Heather was not a good friend after all.
She met a boy in Nevada by her aunts home and fell in love with him. They spent lots of time together and had very sweet and passionate experiences. Sadly she had to leave her aunt’s house, leave the first boys she has ever been in love with and go back to a torturous place, her home. When she got back, she got beat up a lot more because while living with her aunt, she learned how to stand up for herself and grow up. That didn’t sit well with her father and he beat her up for standing up for herself at the dinner table.
They like to sneak out to watch horror movies at night, to snack on fast foods, and to snuggle when it is freezing cold. Both were extremely happy when they dated but all good times eventually ends. Every day they talked to each other on the phone, telling the other to end the call first. In the end, they ended the relationship since both parents found out their secret. Both of them know that they will damage their relationship with their parents for lying, but they do it for the risk of being together.
They started to make pledges because of a conflict that occurred in elementary school among all of them. They had all liked the same girl. They did not want to lose their friendship so it was Ivan’s idea that they make a pledge that she was off limits. Since then they had made pledges for everything. Morris had the same nightmare of all of him and his friends fighting in the war and end up all being killed almost every night so it was a pledge by Morris that if one of them is drafted for the military to fight in the Vietnam War then all of them had to sign up.
We were best friends since first grade, or at least I was her best friend when she wanted me to be. I was always friends with her, but she would dump me in an instant for someone better as she always said, “you’re my bestie.” Every time I heard her say that last year I would go home and cry my eyes out of my mom. She signed up to do dodgeball with me and when I went to do it she didn’t want to anymore and left me. Finally I couldn’t take it any more so I sat at a different table at lunch and she TOLD me, not asked me, to come sit back with her. When I said that I could sit where I wanted she was so ticked at me.
When I say all I mean that some families could be deported, so my parents got their citizenship in order not to be afraid of being forced out of your own home. For example I always as a kid wanted to go to sleep over, but my parents said no because they didn’t know the parents. Another time my sister wanted to hang out with her friends, but my parents said no once again then my sister said you can meet my friends my mom said let me think about it, so she did and my oldest sister went to meet up with her friends. In the end my sister was allowed to go, but it took some time for my sister to get permission from my mom to get to go out with different people other than family. Their reason makes sense, but my sister hates that they do this.
In conclusion, Ginny from the first time she met Smitty she knew she liked him and wanted to be with him, she tried to help him out so he can speak but never worked, until the day where they went to the party. That is when Smitty had said his first word in the past 15 years. But Ginny had pushed Smitty far that made him end up in the
The boy was heartbroken, and he regretted choosing the girl over the bass of a lifetime. To me I get stuck in that situation all the time. Whether it’s going to a friend’s house, or making a simple, but difficult decision. One time both of my super tight friends asked me to go to their party on the same night. I thought about it for a while, than I did what seemed the most fair.
The unknown is so hard to deal with as a mother and as someone that has an illness. I am remember reading about Helen Keller in High School and, I remember even viewing the movie the Miracle Worker that same year in High School. I all ways wanted to know more but, I never knew I wanted to be like her cause, I just know the story of her break through putting the word water together with the feel of seeing it run over her hand. Giving back really means a great deal to me. My heart is for the veteran’s and their families in my area, I know five that live in three miles of my
Flashback. Fourth grade, my two best friends and I were inseparable, we did everything together. As the years progressed I noticed a change as my two best friends pushed me farther and farther away until I was alone. Sixth grade comes along and I was friendly with everyone but not “friends” with them. Fights started to occur that pushed me farther out of the group of girls.
