My Life.

Ruth has been through a lot. Her parents have just got divorced and her pet kitten Laura is all she has left. Her few close friends are drifting away from her and even the teachers look at her like a dirty piece of used chewing gum. Ruth starts to write a diary about her life and the way everything is affecting her but will anybody realise what is happening before it's too late?

I have a whole book full of blank white pages all for me to fill up...Where to start...ah, I'll introduce myself. My name is Ruth and I'm thirteen. I live in England. My Dad gave me this journal before he left me and Mum. He told me to fill it up with every little sad thought, happy thought, angry thought, secret thought. So that is what I will do. I should give you a little bit of my background.

My Mum and Dad have just broken up and Dad's going away to live in a different house. In Australia. The other side of the world. A few towns away wasn't good enough for him, oh no. Mum said it was for the better. They always argued my parents did, about everything. About work, about me, about the government, about money, about me, about television, about me. I'll miss my Dad so much...he meant the world to me. The whole world.

I have a three friends...Jenny, Dave and Olivia. That's it. I'm not very popular but that's okay with me - I hate the limelight anyway. I'm clever in school. But not the cleverest. I'm a little bit popular. But not the most popular. I have a bit of talent. But I'm not the most talented. I don't stand out in anyway whatsoever.

I have a little kitten called Laura who is snowy white with beautiful blue eyes and she is the most beautiful kitten in the entire world. I love her more then anything else - when I've had a hard day at school she is my saving grace. She sleeps on my feet at night and cuddles up on my lap during the day when I'm doing my homework or watching TV or eating.

Mum's coming now because it's late and she wants me to turn my light off probably but I can't sleep. It's my first night without Dad...
