Mr. Roy said you weren't allowed to write "fabrications" about the other candida+es. So I told Mr. Roy that the thing about +V>e head lice was true, and how it practically closed down +he whole school when i+ happened.
But he took down all my pos+ers anyway. So -today, Marty Porter was going a round handing out- lollipops +o buy himself votes while my posters were si+ting at -the Dot-ton of Mr. Roys -trash can. I guess -this means ry political career is officially over.

I tried hot to let i+ bother ne too nuch, though. I’ve never been allowed +o go +o the Crossland haunted house before, and X wasn't going to let Rowley ruin it for ne. Rod rick has told ne all about it, and X’ve been looking forward to this for
about three years.
Anyway, when we got to the entrance, I started having second thoughts about going in.
But Mon seened like she was in a hurry to get this over with, and she noved us along. Once we were through the gate, it was one scare after another. "There were van^ires jumping out at you and people without heads and all sorts of crazy stuff.

X decided +o make a haunted house

X knew Rowley’s dad wouldn’t be crazy about the idea, either, so we decided to build the haunted house in his basement and just not mention it to his parents.
Me and Rowley spent most
the day coning up with an awesome plan for our haunted house.
