Falling Friendship

Alice Arbler and Santana Swent have been BFFs for nine years! When 6th grade comes they expect it to be the same: them being BFFs. But sudden changes in the summer tell them nothing is going to be the same. Alice and Santana must find pathways that don't connect. But each time they think they did, everything crashes and they have to start over again. Everyone they like seems to like everyone the other girl likes. Can they find a social life by the end of the school year? Or will they be doomed to spend the rest of the middle school life unsteady and on a rocky road?

"Santana! UP NOW!" Mom screeches from downstairs.

"I'm coming, I'm coming!" I clomp down the stairs. I'm wearing a new sundress: It's purple with white swirls on it. I have a ribbon holding my hair in a long braid and I'm wearing a tight chain with a white stone bead on it around my neck. 

"You look nice don't you?" says dad as I sit down in front of a plate of waffles. 

"Who's taking me to school today?" I ask while dripping maple syrup on the waffles. 

"Mrs.Arbler. But we're going to switch off and on every day." Mom takes a box out of a bag.

"What's that?" asks my nine year old brother Danny as he plops into his chair.

"A gift for Sanny," that's what my family calls me (Sanny, Danny, see?), "I have something for you too." Mom hands my the box. 

"Oooh! A watch!" I squeal. Inside is a beautiful purple, sparkly watch.

"So you can keep track of your classes." I heard a honk outside. It was time to go.
