My Week

Claire Viola is moving to Brimloch. This is very much against her intentions which was to stay in Edinburgh until she'd finished EDINBURGH'S secondry school. Not move to Brimloch start a new school in a new town where she had no friends. Well, she hasn't started secondry school yet.

But when she finds a diary by a girl who used to live in her room, she finds herself willing the summer holidays to strech, so she can find out what happened to a young lad called John.


2. The Diary of Penelope Greengage

I reeled backwards, falling in to my bed. I blinked. I crawled forward. It was still there. Green leather, a centimetre thick and very dusty. I sneezed, and more dust came up like a sandstorm. Ok Claire, its probably just a book of bills. Or an old mans will. I peered in cautiously. I know a diary when I see one. After a thourgh check for spiders, I lifted it out, like an archeologist who has a precious artifact. I placed it on the floor, stood up, and waited. You can't blame me. In a movie, the pages would flutter open and a booming voice would read out a severe warning. I remained however, in the motionless reality. Ignoring the vibrations from my brothers stereo. I decided to take a risk. I bent down and opened it to the first page. This diary belongs to Penelope Greengage. It was written cheerfully enough. I moved on to the first entry. Iread about this girl, Penolope, with great in interest. It turns out she hid her diary under the floorboard as well, to hide it from her brother John. I smiled. I could relate. She was twelve, and it was her birthday tommorow. Well, it was back then. But it was dated 6th of July. The very same date as today. "Claire! Dinners ready!" If I said just a minute it might arouse suspicion. After all I had to keep up an act of pure despair and a dislike of this village. On the other hand I wanted to keep reading. I'd have to put it away until tommorow. Maybe I could just read it as the days go by. It could be something of a distaction.

I should have read it sooner though.
