1: I dedicate this book to my sister Hannah and my mom.
2: I am going to tell you a story about a girl named Carry and her sisters named Stella and Hope. It was December 21, 2004.Carry and her friends from school were at an amusement park.
3: There was laughter, games and they were having a good time. But, when Carry was walking over to pay the man for the popcorn she had bought she tripped on the wire to the popcorn machine and fell face first into the cement. Everyone started laughing because they thought she did it on purpose. Except Jenny wasn't laughing because she felt bad for Carry. Jenny helped Carry up and took her to the hospital to see if she was O.K.
4: When Carry got home from the hospital on the 23rd Stella and Hope found out that Carry had a broken leg. To make Carry feel better they went out for ice cream.They then went to drop Hope off at their grandparents house so they can go shopping for Hope's birthday on Christmas Eve, which would be the next day.
5: While Stella, her mom, and Carry were shopping Stella saw that Carry was staring at a neon green cast. But Carry thought that she would not be able to get it because their parents already went Christmas shopping and might the might not be able to afford it. But with all the money Stella had made from previous holidays Stella secretly bought the cast. As soon as they picked up Hope and got home Stella ran to her room and hid the present in her closet.
6: It was Christmas Eve and Hope woke up extra early because it was her birthday. Hope got at least 20 presents. Stella told Carry to open the present she got her because she could not wait until Christmas. When Carry opened it she was very happy.
7: When Carry was done putting on her cast, her mom took Carry to the hospital for her check up. When she got there the doctor took her ex-ray pictures and showed them. Carry's leg was cured. But, Carry got the bad news that her best friend Jenny had broken her leg while she was ice skating with her family.
8: The doctor asked if Carry and her family can take Jenny's prescription to the hospital for him. So, they were on there way to the hospital. And then Carry remembered about the cast she had gotten for Christmas. When they got there Carry and Jenny talked the whole time. After about 2 hours everyone had to leave. Before Carry left she told Jenny Merry Christmas and left the present on a near by table.
9: Jenny asked the nurse if she can get the present for her. When she opened it it was a neon green cast. She wore it the whole time she had the broken leg. And after about 3 more months everyone was back on their feet again.
10: And as for Stella and Hope , Hope got a kitten while Stella got her own puppy. Just what the wanted in the first place!!
