Dear diary, It’s 5:30 AM and I’m awake. So far every morning, without fail the birds and the sunshine wake me up. There’s no falling back to sleep after that. It’s so stuffy in the cabins, I don’t know how Aisha sleep in here. Miss Madison is already awake.
I don’t know why she gets up this early! Today is the 4th of July and I’m really excited. I want to tell you something, diary, I can’t talk to anyone else about it. This is a really big secret, you have to promise not to tell anyone. It started like this:
I was at the pool. That’s one of the few things I like about camp. It is a beautiful aqua color it’s not dirty and it’s brand new. The sun was shining. That’s when I saw him.
He’s a CIT a.k.a counselor-in-training and he’s 14. I don’t know much else about him, other than the fact that he’s a lifeguard every Tuesday and Thursday from one to three P.M. I think his name is Josh? I’m not sure though.
I wonder if he even know I like him. I have a huge crush and if anyone found out I’d be totally embarrassed. So far I’m willing to stay at camp as long as the boy and the pool stay.
Oh-no Aisha is waking up. I need to get ready, so I will look perfect for the Fourth! Yours truly, Novia

The day was beautiful! I couldn’t wait for the Fourth of July. I had never had that much because celebration at any of the foster homes I had been to. I got dressed quickly and fishtailed my hair.
Yesterday, my new foster mom called me and said that Josh was here at camp. I don’t know how she knows who Josh even is. Maybe she isn’t so bad after all, unless the agency set it up. They’d do something like that. I really want to see him today. I can’t wait!
Diary- I am so mad right now! How did she find out? I wish we weren’t in the same cabin. She’s getting the silent treatment. They played all these boring games earlier and then we had a giant cook-out for dinner. After that there were more games and then we went to watch fireworks and that’s when it happened.
I saw Ashia go up to Josh. She ran up and hugged him!
Then they laughed and talked like old friends.
After the fireworks, she got up and walked back to our cabin like nothing had happened.
I got back to the cabin and it looked like my diary had been tampered with!
Signed frustrated, Novia
I didn’t take her stupid diary! Ugh! Just because I’m a foster kid I get blamed for everything. It’s not like I’ve ever broken the law. That night I cried myself to sleep. I had so much fun until after the fireworks. What had I done wrong?
Later….. Novia’s POV
I know how to get back at Aisha. I’ll prank her. I’ve pranked my brother so many times! It’s so easy. Maybe this will teach her not to intrude my privacy.
What did you think? Comment below. Yes, Nikki is back. She’s been back for a while but I haven’t posted a review on her yet. Sorry! Look for more posts soon.
