I'd like to tell you about about each of the important characters in my book; the trouble is, which one to tell you about first. Well, you're all probably thinking, "get on with it, we know that you chose to tell us about Ellie Claire Roberts." I'll get on with it, then. I decided to tell you about Ellie first because she's my main character. Simple enough.

Ellie is a crazy fifteen year-old, looking for adventure. If you remember that, then you know a lot about Ellie. She's been adventuresome ever since she was small, but the longing for it has grown over the years. So, when she and her three friends stumble onto a notebook (through a bunch of strange events) she starts to jump to conclusions, and makes a big deal out of nothing--something she always does. Her friends say that she's blowing things out of proportion--especially when Ellie links the notebook to a local murder.

Fate seems to be on Ellie's side, though. An old friend calls Ellie up and they start to talk about the murder--which seems mysterious to Ellie. After Ellie and her old friend are done talking, Ellie finds out that Trey--one of her three friends--has called the FBI so Ellie can tell them what she thinks.

That's all that I'll tell you now, because I don't want to give the rest of the plot away. Maybe (more like hopefully) I'll be able to give you some more character sketches (if they don't bore you to death).


Ellie Claire Roberts is my character. Please do not copy her--whether it be her name, or the person (for example, taking who she is but changing her name). Thanks for your cooperation!
