I'm learning that lesson the hard way. Hi, I'm Trevor. And boy, am I ever in a bad situation.
See, I'm friends with this girl Heather. Best friends, actually, even if I've never been invited to her house. But one day, when she drops her diary, she starts to act completely wacko with me. I mean, I gave it right back. From the way she was acting, you'd think I killed her dog or something. Right then, I wanted to know what was in her diary. So when she wasn't looking, I stole it.
I know I shouldn't have, because it got me in this mess to begin with. I mean, alright, she misses school a lot. I just thought it was because she doesn't like school and pretends to be sick. Some girls in our class, like Rebecca, aren't the nicest to her. And yeah, ok, so she has bruises sometimes. I mean, she's always falling down those stairs of hers. She's so clumsy.
At least, that's what I thought. But her diary says differently. Her diary... it says her Mom's boyfriend hits her. I don't know what to think anymore. Is she just making it up or is that what's been happening all along?
I don't know what to do!
