  2. 2. A day HANDOUT 1A in the Hazel is 14, smart, funny and fed up. Hazels tormentor, the gorgeous, all-achieving Lauren Stevenson, class bully, is about to life of fall apart under the pressure to stay pencil-thin. When the conflict between the two girls comes to a head, the outcome takes ME! everyone by surprise, especially Hazel. Excerpt from ‘Hazel, Not a Nut’ by Gill Lobel. CHAPTER ONE Hazel Anne Mooney. H.A.M. Ham – Fat ham Mooney – Bum The pig. You’d think parents would give some thought when they name their children, wouldn’t you? I mean, they have this baby, this precious baby. They’ve waited nine whole long months for it. It’s supposed to be the most wonderful thing in the world, so they give it a name that tells all the world how much they love it. If I ever have a baby of my own, which seems very unlikely at the moment, I would give it a beautiful name like Alyssa, or Jasmine, or Jessica. And I’d spend a bit of time checking out initials as well. So why did my parents, whose surname is Mooney, christen their first child Hazel Anne I hear you ask? Perhaps they knew their only daughter was going to be the fattest girl in Alderman Newbold High School. Lauren. Now, there’s a name! It sounds like sunlight sparkling on cool water. You’d just have to grow up beautiful with a name like that. Lauren Stevenson is beautiful all right. Long, slim, brown legs, naturally blonde hair that looks as if she’s just walked out of the hairdressers, not a single spot on her peaches and cream complexion. And her clothes, well, it’s labels all the way; you name it, she’s got it. Even her school shoes are Italian designer. She’s also in the top set for everything, and won the Marvin Grey award for most promising young dancer in the Midlands. Oh yes and she’s a cow. If there was a Bovine of the Year Award, for the Most Promising Cow in the Midlands, Lauren would win that too. ee to be me© National Schools Partnership 2010.
