Jamie's New Neighbor
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 Jamie sat on the porch. She twirled her dark brown hair and stared at the ground.
2 Mom came out the front door. She sat down next to Jamie. "What's wrong?"
3 "Nothing," she said with a shrug.
4 Mom grinned. "When you twirl your hair, I know something is wrong."
5 Jamie looked at Mom. "Really?"
6 "Yes," said Mom. "Now tell me what is bothering you."
7 A slight grimace crossed Jamie's face. "I met Michael, the boy next door, today."
8 "That's wonderful," said Mom.
9 "I don't know if it is," said Jamie, twirling her hair faster.
11 "Because he's deaf," said Jamie.
12 Mom looked surprised. "Why does that bother you?"
