CLaudia: My Ex-best Friend
You probably know about my family. My oldest brother, Charlie, takes care of me, my brothers, and my sister. That's because our mom and dad died four years ago. So basically, it's just the five of us. But there's lots more about me that you should know.... My best friend, Jody, is such a pain sometimes. She's always telling me how to act, what to wear, which people to hang out with. And she just expects me to listen to her. Last week, I met a really cute guy named Cliff. I could tell he liked me. But Jody told me to give it up. She said he would never date a "brainiac" like me. I believed her -- as usual. Then I found out that Jody wanted him for herself. She didn't even care that I liked him, too. That's the last time I ever listen to anything Jody says. And there's no way I'm going to let her have Cliff!
