Who is this Amanda truly?
Response number 11
I didn’t know her very well - not from school, definitely, because I go to a boarding school outside of Orion. But whenever we’re allowed to come into town on weekends or sometimes in the afternoons, I spend my time at the bookstore, and that’s how I met Amanda. She was almost always there. We never hung out anywhere else or anything, although I did run into her once at the movie theater, but we would talk about the books we had both read and recommend our favorites to each other. She seemed like a pretty cool person. She was deep - real in a way that a lot of people aren’t. She didn’t seem like the kind of girl who would go out of her way to make other people like her or to be like other people, and she cared about more than who was dating who and what so-and-so was wearing. I always did like that about her.

Well i know her but she not exactly one of my friends. I don’t think she really likes me. She’s in a couple of my classes and when we have study time in the library she gets out really strange books. I sit 1 table across from her so I try get as much info as I can. It does’nt really look like she studies. Looks like to me, she’s planning something big. Not too sure what but I’ll try keep you in touch

Amanda is something out of this world to me. I truly admire her way of always standing up for the little people and how she’s so unique. Everyday, I would see her from the corner of my eyes giving answers to… well, everything. A genius. I had math with her and I considered myself very good at it. But, the way she just did things in her head… It was amazing.
I never really had the guts to approach her head on. There was so much I wanted to know about her… I was drawn to her and I wanted to be friends. Instead, every time I just drew my head away and turned to the latest manga I had.
When she went missing, I was curious and worried. How could she just disappear like that? Why? The way she took on life at school… It made me think that she would not be the type to leave and not say anything at all. I crave the answers to her disappearance. It kind of makes me wish that I did have the guts to talk to her or even just say “hi.”
Hopefully, she will be back soon. When she comes back, I will talk to her and find out more about her.

Amanda was in my history class. She was very particular where she sat and had to have her desk arranged just so. I thought it weird at first. She’s beautiful, a bit arrogant, but vivacious too. Always had a smile for me and other geeky nerds. (No, I’m not a geeky nerd, I’m a Cheerleader!). She allowed someone to copy her history notes. Total class.

Well… I don’t know. Everyone has different opinions about who she is. It seems like she is fifty different people instead of just one. The question is..does anyone actually know the REAL Amanda? Or does everyone just know another version of her?

Amanda was one of those people who got to know you really well, but one day you realize you don’t really know them. She knew absolutely everything about my life, but I don’t even know where she was born! All I know is that she told me she lived in a motor home with her father, and her mother had died in a car accident when she was a little kid.
She was always an escape from the drama and gossip of the rest of the world. Amanda, though she was beautiful and intelligent and could have been popular, seemed not to care about any of that.
I thought Amanda was a true friend, one of my best friends, but now I feel like I don’t know her much at all.

Hello everyone, I’m Charlotte :)
I was born and raised in England [woot-woot!] in a small town near London called Finchley. I moved over here not even a year ago and I’ve had some trouble making friends. I’m very shy I must admit, and it’s not really something I’m proud of, but I always feel completely carefree and totaly myself when I’m in the water. I live with my older cousin who thankfully has a fantastic pool which I use to practise for the swim team.
Anyhoo, back to Amanda. She lived down the street from me and whenever I saw her I thought that she was interested in being friends. We would go to the neighbourhood park every now and then, catch the tube down to the museum, go shopping for jumpers and trousers just like any normal teenage girls. Even though we would hang out we never talked much about her life so I’m not sure that I can help you much.
But one thing that I did find weird was that she was ALWAYS up for anything that I wanted to do, except for when I asked her to come over for a swim. She would always refuse the offer, I don’t know why though. Occasionaly she would come over but she wouldn’t even let her legs hang into the edge of the pool! She wouldn’t even let me jump into the pool when she was over because she didn’t want to get splashed.
I don’t know why she was so scared of the water, or if there is any significance in it but I thought I would let you all know and you can make what you can of it!
Her disapaerance is rubbish news and I hope we can get to the bottom of this soon!
Best of luck all!

Well I have never gone to a class with Amanda but I have seen her plenty of times in the hall before. I think she might of even smiled at me once. There was one time were she was running frantically down the hallway with panic written all over her face. I had never seen her like that before! I watched her push her way through the talking students, until she ran out the front door and into the parking lot. I couldn’t see any more because some kid walked in front of me and by the time I got my view of the glass doors back she was gone. I didn’t see her for the rest of the morning, and I searched for her at lunch but never found her. We aren’t great friends and we haven’t spoke but two words but something told me too keep looking for her. She is so strange and undefined that I can’t help but wonder what happened to her. If it were just some other student I could probably care less. I have never been so confused. She never gave me any info on her background I dont think she even told me her last name.
