Hi, my name is Amelia McDonald. I’m almost thirteen and I live on Love Blossom Farm here in Lovett. Of course my mother treats me as if I’m still a baby—I’m not even allowed to date although most of my friends are. My mother has clearly forgotten what it’s like to be a teenager since she’s practically a dinosaur herself.
Fortunately my grandparents gave me a phone for Christmas or I would be totally cut off from the rest of the world. Can you imagine talking to your friends on the kitchen phone? Pleeeease! Besides, no one calls anymore, they text.
I like this boy Ned, and I think he kinda likes me. We’re both in choir at church and one day he held the door open for me. I guess he’s what my mother would call a gentleman. But anyway, I’m pretty sure that means he likes me. He gave me the cutest smile—he has a dimple in his right check that makes me go weak in the knees.
I don’t know what I’ll do if he asks me out and my mother won’t let me go. He’ll think I’m some kind of major dork. I’ve seen Katelyn making eyes at him—I’m sure she’d laugh herself silly if I had to say no.
I think I’m old enough to date—what do you think?
