Read an Excerpt

Hello Notebook! It’s me, Katie Roberts, age 11. From now on, I am going to write down every single thing that happens. Or at least everything important. And remember, this notebook is PRIVATE! No one is allowed to see what’s inside, and ESPECIALLY NOT MY MOTHER, who is getting married today at noon. (The man she is getting married to is called Sam Gold. I will maybe tell you more about him later, but first I have to talk about me.)

I am sitting on my new bed in my new room in Texas. There’s a canopy, which I like. But I miss my old bed in my old room in New York City and . . . I WISH WE NEVER MOVED HERE 8 DAYS AGO. Why? Because I HATE living on a ranch in the middle of nowhere! It is hot here every minute and this house is too big. There are no neighbors nearby. No subways. Not a single tall building. I LIKE CITIES NOT WILDERNESS, AND I AM NO PIONEER!

Mama says new things take getting used to, but she is wrong. Because I will never get used to Texas and I want to go home now.

And one more thing. I don’t understand why SHE (my mother) has to get married all of a sudden. We were fine, just the two of us. Perfectly, wonderfully fine. Now everything is spoiled and it's not fair. Well at least I have new shoes for the wedding. Patent leather with a strap across. They look sensational and gorgeous with pink pajamas, which I am wearing right now. Presenting . . . Katie Roberts tap-dancing pajama queen! I like new shoes. And also pink pajamas.
