The First Day of School…

“Today is the first day of school, and right now we’re just waiting around for the teacher to hurry up and finish the seating chart.  So I figured I might as well write in this book to pass the time.  By the way, let me give you some good advice.  On the first day of school, you got to be real careful where you sit.  You walk into the classroom and just plunk your stuff down on any old desk and the next thing you know the teacher is saying–I hope you all like where you’re sitting, because these are your permanent seats.  Gaah!”             From “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” by Jeff Kinney 

“I can usually pick out the popular kids soon after setting foot into a new school.  The girls, anyway.  They wear popularity like a uniform for everyone to see.  From their hairstyles to their expensive shoes.  Everything about them is torn from the glossy pages of the latest fashion magazines.  Everything about them is perfect.  At least on the outside, anyway.  The boys are a little trickier…”        From “Zombie Blondes” by Brian James

“Just be yourself,” my mother said, as if that were easy.   Which it isn’t.  Ever.  Especially not when you’re fifteen and don’t know what language you’re going to have to speak at lunch, or what name you’ll have to use the next time you do a “project” for extra credit.  Not when your nickname is “the Chameleon.”  Not when you go to a school for spies.                          From Cross my Heart and Hope to Spy” by Ally Carter

“Harry woke at five o’clock the next morning and was too excited and nervous to go back to sleep.  He got up and pulled on his jeans because he didn’t want to walk into the station in his wizard’s robes…”
From “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” by J. K. Rowling
