You are a 12-year-old girl named Cindy.
Hey Mom, I joined the baseball team today. I hope I get in.
That's wonderful, Mike! Good luck making the team.
Thanks Mom, I'm going to go practice now.
I joined the book club, Mom! Do you think I'll like this book?
Out of my Mind by Sharon M. Draper
I think you'll love it, Melanie! I did when I read it a a kid!
How about you, Cindy? Did you join anything?
Uh.... no... Maybe tomorrow.
I certainly hope you do tomorrow! I'm so proud to have social-friendly children, and I don't want you to be left out!
I will, Mom.
The next day...
Hmm.... This might be good...
In the Art room after school.
Join the Activity Planners an plan community activities for all sorts of ages.
I'm Cindy. I'd like to join the activities club...?
Um... oh-okay... um, do you have any ideas?
We're planning an activity for kids about our age.
Oh! We forgot to introduce ourselves!
I'm Nicky, but you can call me Nic...
She's Pamela, but call her Pam...
That's Pauline, but we call her Polly...
And Violet. We call her Vi.
Nice to meet you, Cindy.
Oh, yeah, and that'r Mr. Quintin. He is the adult supervisor, but he doesn't actually do anything.
Who? Did someone say my name? Do you need anything? Ask someone else.
So, do you have any ideas? Kids our age, remember? around 12 years old.
I suggest we have a dance-a-thon.
Hmm, how about a camping trip?
That's a great idea!
I have another idea but it might not work so well.... How about a bake sale?
No, never mind, that wouldn't work too well.
Let's vote. But I don't want to yet.
Dance-a-thon. Sorry, Cindy.
I think a camping trip is a great idea! I vote camping trip.
Your turn to vote, Cindy.
If you vote for the dance-a-thon, rate good read.
Don't forget to rate!
If you vote for the camping trip, rate artistic.
If you insist on voting for the bake sale, rate funny.
