John Marsden Writing Topic #472
Describe a time when you got into trouble, but you were innocent**
When I was in Year One at school, I sat next to a boy who used my pencil and never gave it back. I tried to retrieve it and he told the teacher that I was stealing his pencil. Despite the fact that my name was on it, I still got in trouble and the teacher yelled at me.
