Happy 8th birthday!
Addison Tysman and her friends are having fun at her surprise party. Beached in a Camper
made them giggle when I read:
It’s a double whammy as the two water balloons burst and soak my target - Freckles. She stands frozen. Her eyes, a stormy sea-green, land on me like a lighthouse beacon. She searches for another water bomb to sail my way, but all the balloons are destroyed. Her frigid eyes glare at me as she lets out a huff and marches off.
She isn’t the kind of friend I would want, anyway. Or is she? A bit of a smile forms on my face. Come to think of it, Freckles is the one who started The Great Water Balloon War! This freckled-faced firecracker, who cooled us off on a hot summer day, might just be a friend after all.
Then, out of nowhere, a water bomb explodes all over on my back. I whirl around.
“Found one, Adam!” Freckles sings out.
Addison told me Dear Dumb Diary use to be her favorite book, but not anymore!
