My name is Vicky, and I'm twelve years old. This year, a ten-year-old named Maggy has come to live with us. Before that day, I was pretty happy; sure I fought with my brothers and sister, but we were a family and we loved each other. Maggy is an orphan, and I know I should feel sorry for her, but it's really hard to be nice to a spoiled brat. Mother and Daddy say she's never really known love and that's why she acts so mean and bossy. I sure hope I can find a way to live with her, because it looks like she might be here to stay.

Usually, just before dinner is the nicest time of day, but this evening I suddenly wanted to be alone for a few minutes. Was it just because Maggy had reminded me that I am plain?
