When Tessie, a small 6 year old girl visits an underprivileged school in Fiji, she learns that not everyone has what she can experience everyday.

Chapter One

“Wake up Tessie! Wake up! We’re going to Fiji!” Mom’s voice cut through my sleep.

I groaned and I woke up, blinded by the sun, which was starting to peek above the Empire State Building. I stretched and scrambled to the bathroom. I washed my face, brushed my teeth, and took a nice long bath. Then, I slowly slunk down the stairs. After greeting my mom, I ate a breakfast of nice hot pancakes dunked in maple syrup, and washed that down by drinking a glass of fresh milk.

I was so excited to be going to Fiji!

Dad had told me a few weeks ago, “Fiji is a country made up of many islands! Anyway, it’s just you and mom, going to a nice vacation, so be careful! Don’t fall off a boat, because I don’t think mom can swim!”

We swiftly zoom through city traffic in the safe walls of a New York Taxi. Soon enough, we were at the airport, and were safely checked in and chilling out in the lounge. I sucked on some candies, and hoped that Fiji had new sweets that I could try.

A speaker rang, and a lady’s dull voice droned, “Calling all passengers on Flight U2456Q to board at Gate 5.”

I giggled. Mom said, “Tessie now is not the right time!”

“The lady sounds like a robot!” I managed to choke out.

“Oh, Tessie!” exclaimed Mom, giggling along with me. We happily strolled towards the Gate.
