Sample text:

Have you ever felt that something was meant to be? That perhaps a chance meeting was not so accidental after all; almost as though it had been previously arranged and was waiting to happen. Being in just the right place at just the right moment has to be more than coincidence. And I am convinced that Millie and I were meant to meet that day.  It was as if the opportunity to cross paths had been planned all along. And when Millie accidentally bumped into me in the store, the conversation that followed seemed the most natural thing in the world. Somehow I had known that our chance meeting would eventuate in a friendship of sorts. Call it intuition or simple gut instinct, but for some reason, I was sure we would hit it off. I also knew that a real friend was something I’d been craving my entire life. As luck would have it, Millie herself, was in desperate need of a close friend as well. Her best friend, a girl called Julia Jones, had recently moved with her family to the country and Millie was missing her terribly. So for each of us, the timing could not have been better. Strangely enough, I’d always been able to make friends. For me that seemed to come easily. The problem lay in keeping them. New kids at school were always an attraction, and I often found that I had plenty of people interested in becoming my friend and wanting to hang out with me each time I started at a new school. And believe me, this happened a lot! But the friendships never lasted. Within no time at all, they’d find me weird or strange or creepy; and then do everything they could to avoid me. So, in time, I learned the secret was to keep my mouth shut. And when we eventually moved to Carindale and I met Millie, I instantly realized it was my opportunity to start over. “Just don’t say anything, Emmie. Keep your comments to yourself!”
