The Twins

"Give me that!" said a seven-year-old kid named Ahmed.

"No, it's mine!" said Ahmed's twin brother named Muhammad.

"Stop fighting over the pizza.  There is enough for everyone," said their mom.

"No, Muhammad's is bigger than mine," said Ahmed.

"Is not!" said Muhammad.

"Is too!" said Ahmed.

"Is not!" said Muhammad.

"That's enough," said their mom.

Muhammad shoved Ahmed and he started to cry.

"I hardly even hit you.  You are a crybaby!" said Muhammad.
"Muhammad, go to your room," said their mom who started to get angry.

Muhammad left for his room. 10 minutes later Muhammad's mom made him say sorry to Ahmed. Then they started to like each other until the next time their mom ordered pizza.

The Woods

Once upon a time there were two sisters named Martha and Annie,they were twins differing in eye color.
Martha had brown eyes and and Annie had green eyes.

They were upstairs making crafts until Annie decided to go play.

They were playing catch until their ball rolled into the dark woods.

''Well aren't you going to get it?'' Martha asked.

''No way! You go get it!'' Annie exclaimed.

''OK fine I will, scaredy-cat," Martha snickered.

''Hmpth,''Annie snorted as she watched Martha go into the woods.

 A few minutes later, Martha didn't come back.  Annie was worried.  ''Martha!'' she called.  ''Where are you!''

"HELP!'' Martha screamed. Annie's heart pounded as she ran into the woods.

''HELP!'' Martha yelled.

Desperate,scared,and worried, Soon, Annie came to Martha. She was holding their ball, laughing her head off.

Annie frowned. ''Don't EVER do that to me again.  You almost gave me a heart attack!'' she shouted.

''You should have seen your face!'' Martha said,laughing.

Annie sighed.  "Let's just go home.''

Martha kept laughing all the way to the house and Annie kept
frowning,but after a while,she too,laughed.

Silently Annie thought to herself,''Maybe I'll prank Martha next time,'' and she snickered.

Secrets at Camp Nokomis by Jacqueline Dembar Greene

I like this this book because Rebecca is like me when she can't wait to go swimming and canoeing at camp Nokomis. I am also like her because she can't wait to meet new friends like me. This book is about Rebecca trying to find out what secrets is her bunk mate hiding, and why? Also, when camp pranks start getting out of hand, a girl goes missing, and Rebecca is determined to find out what's really going on at camp Nokomis.
