The Summer Notebook
“This is CUTE !â? Hazel yells from my closet. I’m sitting on my bed reading Teen Vouge and drinking a diet Dr. Pepper.
“Yep.â? I yell back, even though I have no clue what she’s talking about. Everything in my closet is cute anyway. Lila is on my couch, painting her nails orange.
“Can I borrow this?â? Hazel walks out of my closet holding my turquoise Versace mini skirt.
“Thanks. I’m going to Ice tonight with Brett and Lynn. Hey, wanna come?â?
Ice is this dance club for teens that Lynn’s dad owns. It’s ok I guess, but Hazel wants to go there every night. I have better things to do.
“No thanks, I’m hanging out with…my cousin, Tallia.â?
Eden rolls her eyes from her spot on my floor.
“OK guys, listen up.â?
Lila, Hazel, Taryn, Eden all look up at me. I walk over to my desk, open a drawer, and pull out a pink and green-stripped notebook. On the cover we all signed our names in shiny gold Sharpies.
“You all know why we’re here.â?
Eden rolls her eyes again.
