1: At the beginning before Martha's family trip Mrs. Barstow came over to Martha's house and gave her a note. .It was a note that Olive Barstow wrote in her journal before a sad accident happened.
2: Olive was hit by a car. She was riding her bike when a big semi - truck came by and hit her. Olive never really played with others but she always want to be Martha's friend. In school people didn't want to play with her they'd tease her and make fun of her.
3: After she came over Martha the main character and her family decide to go to her grandma's. Martha and her family decided to take a plane. Godbee is Martha's grandma, she is very old.
4: Martha's family is a normal sized family. In her family theres her mom, dad, brother and little sister. | MARTHA'S LITTLE SISTER lUCY
5: Vince Martha's brother can be a jerk sometimes, and Lucy what a handful. Martha's parents are always on the run, so she never gets to talk and spend time with them. And so Martha is holding every thing inside her but she has her grandma Godbee to tell her secretes.
6: When they got to Godbee's Vince hoped right out and ran to the Manning's to go say hi, he ended up staying for dinner.
7: The Manning's are a family that are a few minutes away from Godbee's. There are four little boys in the family.
8: Martha and Jimmy started to hang out together and say out late on the beach. jimmy was doing a little movie with his video camera. Martha think Jimmy is starting to like her.
9: One day Jimmy asks Martha if she wants to help him do another section of his video; Martha agrees and follows him down to the spot. The section he wanted to do was the love part. Jimmy asked Martha if she's ever been kissed by a boy, Martha replied with a no. Jimmy than grabbed her shoulders and pulled her close and gave her a kiss.
10: "I've got it" said Jimmy "I've got it! Got what Martha thought. "I've got the kiss, I won the bet!" It was all a lie Jimmy wasn't doing it for the love section he was doing it for a bet. Jimmy got his video camera and ran off.
11: The next day it was all over Martha wasn't talking to Jimmy and mad at her brother for setting her up.
12: Martha took Lucy her little sister to the beach and played around. Martha buried Lucy in the sand Martha pretended Lucy was a princess and ran off to go get food for her pretendedly. When Martha was going over there she grabbed her little Olives ocean jar and buried it. On her way back she say Jimmy holding hands with this girl. Then all of a sudden she fell right into this tide pool and started to drown.
13: She made it back up and noticed that Jimmy just walked by without even noticing her. Martha ran over to Lucy and took her home.
14: Going home was hard for Martha she hadn't told anybody about the kiss. They all said there good bye's and left.
15: Home again when Martha got home she went to go find Olives mom. She had no luck finding out she had moved a while ago by their old lanyard. So now she will always remember Olive in her heart.
16: Favorite scene My favorite scene was the part when Jimmy puled that joke on Martha when he asked "have you ever kissed a boy before?" Martha's replied with a no. As she said no she was thinking He loves me!! Until Jimmy said "I've got it , I've got it I won the bet.
17: Question If I were to a new character in the book my name would be Bella Manning. Bella Manning would be the only girl child in the Manning resident. She would help Martha fight the boys back after that nasty, slobbery kiss/joke on Martha. Martha and Bella would pull a horrible joke on them so that they'd never pull another joke on them again. Bela would be best friends with Martha. And thinks her brothers are complete jerks.
