Note from Legoflife - This chapter again is self explanatory; it should cover memories from 11 years old to 16 years old.

NB WHATEVER chapter or category section you tag a story in, it will automatically appear in chronological order in the main “timeline’ category section as well as this 'Age 11-16 chapter section’
