Jenna . . . I hope I'm a pretty good person. I try to be. But things happen, and sometimes I mess up. You try living with five sisters.
Leah . . . Does being so wrapped up with Miguel mean I'm missing out? Because I promised myself I'd never miss anything for a guy. Ever.
Melanie . . . Everyone thinks that being Melanie Andrews must be so great. Well, let me tell you—it's not. Not even close.
Nicole . . . No guy is ever going to like me. It doesn't matter how much weight I lose, or how I wear my makeup, or even how I dress. Because I'm not good enough inside—and I think somehow they sense it.

Monday night Dear Diary, Today has got to be the best first day of school in the history of Clearwater Crossing! I got great classes, and it was fun to see how everyone has changed over the summer. Mostly the changes are about what you'd expect, longer hair and darker skin, a few sun streaks here and there, but Naomi Richards got her nose pierced! I was shocked that her parents would let her, and I'm not even sure why she'd want to, except that she obviously thinks it looks pretty cool. Peter and I had the best time at lunch, talking to friends from last year and finding out what they'd been up to. I just love the whole first day atmosphere—new classes, new clothes, and all the excitement of a brand-new year. But that's not even the best part. Miguel del Rios is in my homeroom! I can't believe I got so lucky. I have to meet him, and now I'll finally have my chance. He looks just the same as last year, except that right now he's incredibly tan. His eyes are still that same soulful shade of brown, though, and his smile still makes me jelly right down to my toes. Did I say he looks the same as last year? Scratch that—he looks better! Did I already mention that this was the best day of all time? Of course, I didn't spend the whole day thinking about Miguel. There's a lot of other stuff going on too. One of the guys on the football team, Kurt Englbehrt, has leukemia and the other Wildcats and the cheerleaders are putting on a carnival this Saturday to help raise money for his medical care. I only know Kurt by sight, but I still felt awful when I found out he had cancer. Everyone says he's getting better,though, and the carnival is a great idea, so Peter and I definitely want to help. I don't know exactly what we'll be doing there, but we'll find out at the volunteers' meeting they're having after school on Wednesday. I'm so lucky to have a best friend like Peter, who likes to do things like that. He was the one to suggest it, actually, but I'd have volunteered anyway, because it's important to help people out when you can. I realized today that this will be our sixth year as best friends. That's pretty long! You'd think we'd be sick of each other by now, as much as we're together. We see each other at school every day, at church every Sunday, and we almost always get together on Saturdays, too. Ever since Peter and Chris started Junior Explorers on Saturday mornings, we have a little less time together, but I could never complain about such a worthy cause. Those kids need Peter more than I do. This Saturday, though, since Peter and I are going to be working at the carnival, Chris will have to manage the kids on his own—or, more likely, he'll get Maura to help him. Those two make the cutest (and unlikeliest!) couple. I wonder if they're going to get married soon? Chris is pretty old now—something like twenty. I would guess they want to finish college first, but you never know! Maybe they'll surprise us. Well, I should finish writing and hide this before Maggie comes upstairs and finds out I'm keeping a diary. If she knew, she'd only snoop around until she found it and probably read the whole thing. I really wish I didn't have to share my room! Especially with such a messy, noisy, nosy younger sister. She's downstairs watching TV with Allison and Sarah now, but that can't last. If only Caitlin would move out, I could have a room of my own! I still don't understand why she didn't go to college, like Mary Beth, but now that she's graduated from high school, the least she can do is get a job, move out, and give the rest of us some breathing room. I love my sisters, but people grow up—and there are times when a little more privacy would be nice. Now how did I get off on that tangent? I've wanted my own room forever, so why worry about it right now? It would be a shame to ruin the most otherwise-perfect day of my life! F Oops, I hear Maggie on the stairs, so I just have one more thing to say: CCHS Juniors Rule!!!

Tuesday morning I only have a second before Peter picks me up, but I'm so excited I can barely wait. Maggie took off ten minutes ago, and how many times can I pace our room without going crazy? I hope Miguel talks to me today. Or maybe I'll find a reason to talk to him. It'll have to be a good reason, though. Chelsea Stephens tried some lame excuse yesterday about not being able to read the board, and it totally backfired on her. Miguel knew exactly what she was up to. He's like that. He's quiet, but you get the feeling he doesn't miss much. I think that's part of what drives the girls so crazy—that and the fact that he's probably the cutest guy at school. Come to think of it, he's probably heard it all in the lame-excuse department, with so many girls chasing after him. It would be fine with me if he was a little less chased after, but that's his only flaw. Besides, so far no one's caught him. F Okay, Peter's going to be here any second, so I'm going to put this away now. I wish I could tell him about Miguel, but I'd be too embarrassed. I've never even told him I have a crush, let alone who it's on. I have to admit there are certain things it might be easier to share with a girl. I really can't imagine Peter sighing over Miguel's swimmer's physique, for example, or that cute little broody face he makes. Peter's my best friend, but he's still a guy. He just wouldn't understand!

Wednesday night Dear Diary, You will never, ever guess what happened today! Peter and I went to that carnival volunteers' meeting after school and I got the surprise of my life! I want to start from the beginning, though, and write the whole thing down, because I'd hate to forget even a second. The cafeteria was so packed that we could barely find places to sit. It made me feel good to see how many people had turned out, because it shows how much our school cares. It probably didn't hurt that Kurt is a popular football player, but I honestly don't believe that was a huge factor. It didn't matter a bit to Peter and me. We finally found a couple of seats near the front just as the meeting was called to order by Hank Lundgreen. (Somehow he ended up this year's football captain instead of Josh Stockton. Oh, well. I don't really keep up with these things.) Hank yelled for everyone to sit down, then barely paused before he kept right on talking. "Thanks for coming out," he said. "The team's put a lot of planning into this carnival, but we wouldn't be able to pull it off without the help of the cheerleaders, and the support of all of you." The cheerleaders loved that. They were sitting with the football team off to one side, and all of them cheered like crazy. Not to be cynical, but I had the feeling they were cheering more for themselves than for our great support. "So, here's the deal," Hank went on. "We've already figured out all the booths and rides and ordered what we need. We're expecting a huge crowd, and we need you guys to help us man the booths." There was already either a Wildcat or a cheerleader in charge of every concession, so Hank started calling them to the podium one by one to say how many helpers they needed. If you wanted to volunteer for that booth, you were supposed to stand up and wait to be picked. Josh Stockton was the first called up. He may not be the football captain, but he's definitely the biggest guy at our school. Josh was in charge of security, but said he only needed a couple more guys, because he was using mostly players.
