5/22 -5/23 Passage Niki was a new student in Vanessa’s class. She had only been there for a few days, but rumors about her were already spreading around. Some of Vanessa’s friends said that Niki was really rich and she was a stuck-up snob. Other people spread the rumor that Niki got good grades but only because she cheated on all of her tests. Vanessa heard other stories, too, and she didn’t know which ones to believe. She didn’t know what to say to Niki, either. Niki never talked very much unless the teacher called on her. Vanessa had tried to talk to her a few times. But every time she did, Niki ended the conversation as soon as possible.
