(Thanks to darling for this awesome banner)

Truthfully. I couldn't wait. Only 10 minutes until the bell rang for the final time(well at least until next year). Myjunior year of high school was almost over. Soon i would be able to sit back and watch TV. I wouldn't have to study for tests. I wouldn't have to worry about being late for class. I wouldn't have to wake up early for volleyball practice before school(at least for the time being). I would be able to sleep until 1 in the afternoon. Well thats whatI thought until my principal called me to his office.
I thoughtI was getting out early or something. At least that's whatI hoped. When I arrived there I saw Josh Hutchinson, one of my least favorite people on the planet, sitting with all of his books on his lap waiting for the principal to start talking.
"Alexandra, you may sit down next to Josh," said my principal, Mr. Leary.
"OK,"I replied,confused.
"Do either of you know why you are here."
I looked at josh at the same time he looked at me. He looked just as confused asI felt. SoIanswered for the both of us.
"No."
"I figured that much from the looks on both of your faces."
"Mr. Leary, can you please tell us why we are here we both have to get back to the firstfloor to go to our lockers," Josh said quietly(the main office is on the 3rd floor).
" I was getting there. Have patience."
"Sorry Mr. Leary"
"Well as I was saying the school has noted both of your intelligence levels and wants you both to go to a program our country offers that allows you to compete in competitions while having a summer vacation."
"No offense Mr. Clearly but i already have plans for this summer."I said really not wanting to go to school for a summer.
"Well I'm sorry Miss Meadows I've already talked to your parents, and yours too Mr. Hutchinson, and both of you are going and you leave tonight."
"WHAT"I screamed. I lost it I didn't want to go to a freaking geek school for a whole summer. I'm not saying I don't like geeks or anything because I'm kind of a geek myself but I'm used to hanging out with people who don't care about their grades not people who all they do is care about their grades.
"Miss Meadows, sit down right now. There is no need for screaming in this office. "
"Mr. Leary no offense or whatever but you have no right to tellus to go anywhere without our consent," Josh said.
"Yes I do according to the law you are both minors and have very little say in where you go all we need is parental authority."
Josh blushed looking embarrassed for his out-burst. I felt sympathy for him. Josh isn't a very athletic guy, in fact he considers chess as a major sport. Actually his really good at it . He's really tall(6'3") and would problem make it onto the basketball team. He looks emo but isn't. He's mostly a loner at school but whenever i see him in public he's surrounded by people. He never says anything that is out of character. He is a teachers pet. So that out burst was really weird for him.
"Fine Mr. Leary when does the plane leave?"I said with a sigh. There was no way to change this guys mind.
"At 4:15" It's 2:59
I almost yelled at Mr. Leary again. I meanI know that you have to be at the airport 2 hours before your flight. That was about 45 minutes ago. But instead of burstingI controlled myself and instead said " Wait the airport is almost 2 hours away how can we get there in time for our flight." Then Mr Leary said, You're a very funny girl Miss Meadows. You should know by now our schools not poor. We have a private jet that will take you to the camp."
"Mr Leary where's the camp?"
"Oh its in Pennsylvania."
"We need to go home and get all of our things."
"No need for that i had your mothers get all of your clothing for you."
"What about all of our books and other things."
"you'll have the chance to buy new things."
"Maybe we Like our old things"
"It doesn't matter because its now 3:30 and we need to go to the middles school to get on the chopper."
Whoa 40 minutes went by and josh and i didn't get into an argument. Its amazing. But i still cant believe they wont let us get anything. Next they'll say we aren't allowed to have our cell phones or laptops or anything.
"O and before i forget you are not allowed to have any electronic devices" Mr Leary had to say.
We had all of our luggage delivered right to the middle school. By the time we got onto the plane Josh and i were actually in a pretty in-depth conversation.
"You're actually glad to be going." i said to josh assuming my face had the look of surprise that i was feeling.
"Yeah, why? Aren't you?"
"No way i think its all kind of weird. i mean they tell us at the last minute. they don't give us a choice. It's almost dictatorial."
"And..?" he mused.
"And i had summer plans."
"Like what?"
"Do i really have to tell you."
"Well I'm going to be the only person you know at this camp so why not?"
I admit i wasn't to thrilled to be going but i was glad that i had someone to talk to. I mean Pennsylvania is 4 1/2 hours away from my small city in south new jersey, but that's by car so i wasn't sure how long it would take by jet. It could take that long if there was air traffic(that was a joke...hahaha..)
"Okay...Fine.. I was planning on relaxing. No studying. Hanging out with friends. Going to the movies. Having an awesome summer."
"Don't you have that every summer?"
"Are you kidding. My parents have sent me off to my cousins house every summer since i was about 3. And last summer i didn't go but i was practicing volleyball everyday to make it onto the school team."
"Wow and i thought i had bad summers."
"How?"
"My parents are never home during the summers and when they are they're either fighting or locked in their offices busy on some stupid projects."
"Whoa. I'm really sorry. I know kinda how you feel."
"Yea, i guess you kind of do." he said smiling a smile that i had never saw on his face before.
"Well we're here."
"Yea i guess we talked the whole time." he said still with a smile that almost took up his whole face.
"Its amazing we didn't fight." i said kind of sarcastically that problem made him a little mad because he stopped smiling.
"Well i guess we better get off now."

Hello,
i read most of your chapter and here are the suggestions i think you could benefit from,
1. Again like i have told Raya many of your sentences start with the same words. Plz read the comment i gave her and you will see what i mean.
2. The most important part of any conversation is the interaction between the characters, almost every sentence should evoke some kind of reaction. You need to build these up to give your narrative more flow.
3.Your dialogues are fine but some of the longer ones would benefit from breaks, again i will request you to read the comment i gave Raya on her novel.
In the end i would only like to say that i am very impressed, at your age i only knew how to write poems and you my dear show genuine spark and talent. Never stop writing, it is a long road but you are destined for gr8 things if you persevere.

My only major suggestion is please please please type it up in word or something. Maybe I have OCD, but I noticed a whole bunch of punctual, spelling and spacing errors. I like the story so far, but my OCD says 'Fix typos!'
I also think the fact that the principal told them so last minute like that and that the school had a private jet was a bit unrealistic. But it's really interesting so far, so I'll read on! :)

I liked it. You should consider fixing up some of your grammatical errors, for, by correcting those, it would make reading the story much easier. I liked it and the concept of geek school. try to give a little more to characters. _the nickster_
