Hi I’m Elise welcome to my miserable life. I am getting ready to start 6th grade at the Middle School and I was really kind of excited until the day before school starts, I was playing Knights with my very best friend, Franklin when I took a tumble down a hill (while I was defending my castle) I had scratches and scrapes that bled all over the place. So on the first day of school when the temperature was soaring I was forbidden to wear long pants to cover up my hideous legs. Then in my first class I set my backpack down and it scrapes my leg and my scabs open up…(read the page that corresponds to this). Amanda made my life miserable! I get way behind in homework and I am in a downward spiral. Franklin my best friend seems to make kids picking on me worse. I go home to Aunt Bessie and Uncle Hugh who really love me but I still feel empty inside. My mom died giving birth to me and dad died a couple years later from Cancer. I am not really sure who I am until I find the Seven Keys. Perhaps the first one was hanging in the barn but each one opens a secret to who I am. Join me in the adventure of Eight Keys and my totally awful start to middle school.
