The Life of Agnes: Angels, Americans and Agonising Agony

There are three things I love more than anything. 1) Animals 2) My family 3) My freind

In this book you'll find out about the day my best (only) freind came to school for the first time. And about how I found my soul sister in an African American girl from the past. (Who heard Martin Luther Kings speach when she was my age). You can also read about my younger brothers atempts at being a stunt man. (Ouch).


3. Meet the family (Pets included)

“Can’t I come round yours for the project?” I thought about it for a second. “I’m not sure. Wouldn’t we have more peace at your house?”

“Oh come on. Please. My house is still a mess.”

“So’s mine. Oh all right. Come round after school tomorrow.” Me and Tommy had teamed together for a history project. We had chosen to do the Stuarts. He smiled at me. “Great!”


 After school the next day me, Gonzo and Tommy walked back home together. Gonzo chatted with Tommy and Tommy chatted back. When we walked through the door we were mobbed by cats, dogs and little brothers alike. We finely managed to get away and go up to my room. “You have a big family.” Tommy commented. I laughed. “That’s not everyone. There’s my oldest brother Jules. He’s in collage. And there’s my brother Boi.  He’s working at the sports shop. He mainly goes there on Saturday. But he occasionally helps out in the week.” Tommy looked at me. “What about your dad?” I shrugged. “He ran off with the Bleached Blonde Bitch. Or the BB Bitch.” Tommy nodded. Then we started are project. A little while later mum called. “Agnes tea! I’ve made enough for Tommy as well.” So we went downstairs and sat at the table. “Chicken or pea soup?” mum asked Tommy. “Pea. I’m a vegetarian.” I stared at him. “What?” I grinned. “I’m a vegetarian too.” He grinned back at me. We ate are soup, then we had a bowl of fruit salad. “Agnes. Could you take the dogs out for a walk?” mum asked. I nodded. “I’ll come to.” Tommy offered. “I might as well seeing I should be heading home.” Once out the door, (half an hour later. Record time.) I asked Tommy. “Which way is your house?”

“That way.” He replied pointing towards the direction of the shopping centre. So we headed in that direction. Tommy offered to share the (furry) load. So I handed him Big ears and Goblin seeing they’re the best behaved. We walked through the shopping centre, past the park. (Much to my dogs disgust). Until we’d reached Wood Bourne street. Wood Bourne Street is a street full of flats. Each flat has a garage downstairs and living quarters upstairs. Tommy turned to me. “So see you tomorrow.”

“Yeh see you.” I watched him until he diapered into a flat with a blue garage door. Then I turned and took the dogs to the park. Once in the park I let the dogs of their leads. Noddy ran straight to the pond. (Though he didn’t jump in. Thank goodness.) Big Ears and Goblin lay under the large oak tree with me and Tessie bear went to play with one of her friends. It was bliss under the oak tree. The weather was warm for September and the leaves were only just changing. I nearly fell asleep, but was (rudely) disturbed by a large wet dog barking in my ear. Turns out Noddy had decided to take the plunge. I smiled at him. “Wana go home?” I asked. “Woof. Woof.” I guessed that meant yes.
