Lost in the shadows
By Anne Scharff
This kid named Roylin Bailey goes to school one day and sees this pretty girl. Her name is Corie and Roylin really wanted her to be his girl. So during lunch he took her outside by this big tree. They ate lunch together under the tree. But he kind of lied to her by telling her he had lots of money and basically telling her that she can have whatever she would like. But he and his family were caught up with bills all the time. After school, he took Corie to the jewelry store because she wanted to show him this necklace that hopefully one day she could get. Once they got to the necklace the price was three-hundred dollars. Even though it was very expensive he had to find a way to get it to her. So he decided he would take it from a friend. But his friend disappears. If you want to know what happened to the friend, go get this book from your local library.
