Hi, I’m M.E. which stands for MariaElena. but I like just using the initials. It’s easier. I come from a large Hispanic family—we’re from Mexico, but my grandma is American Indian. I speak Spanish at home with my parents and English at school and with my friends. I look like my madre. We both have long dark hair and brown eyes, and we love to wear colorful clothes with sparkles and glitter. I’m kinda known for my funny socks and creative outfits. My three brothers are older than me and they tease me a lot. But I love them.
I met Quinn and Luke at summer camp, in a class called Cryptology for Kids. That’s when we formed the Code Busters Club. I’m so glad Cody joined, otherwise I would have been the only girl, but now Mika joined. They’re my best friends now. I wish I lived next door to her, but I’m only a block away. She says I have a lot of “energy,” which is probably true. But she’s braver than me. I’m kind of a chicken when it comes to doing scary stuff—like sneaking into a burned out house or meeting up with a mountain lion. But who wouldn’t be scared about that?
I’ll write more later, after I get done with my homework. Unless I get a coded note from one of the Code Busters about something mysterious…
