Doodle and A first met at a summer day camp four years ago. They reconnected at the same camp a year later and then didn't see each other for two years. Doodle didn't love her music camp quite as much this year (it's hard to top 50s and 60s rock) but she was thrilled to renew her friendship with A, who was also adopted from China. Some of the teenage apprentices couldn't tell the girls apart which bothered them at first (the differences are pretty pronounced: A has a rounder face and Doodle is about 2-3 inches taller) but then they decided to have fun with it. For the last three days of camp the girls planned to wear the same thing every day and switched their name tags. They tricked one boy on the first day but after that they were on to the pranksters. In addition to their birth country, the girls do have a few other things in common: they both have braces and they both play the flute. A and Doodle will go to the same middle school and high school so hopefully their friendship will continue for years to come.
