“Hey, Shosh,” Chavie began, walking alongside her best friend on their way home from school, “wanna come over today?” “I’d love to,” Shosh began, “but I have to study for this monster math test. My parents told me if I bring up my grade, they’ll take me somewhere really special on Sunday. So I have to do well this time.”

It’s so lonely just having brothers around.” “Hmm.” Shosh debated a moment, weighing the pros and cons. If she kept an eye on the time, there was really no reason she shouldn’t have time to do both — play with Chavie and study. “Okay,” she agreed, and Chavie’s grin spread from ear to ear. But somehow the afternoon zoomed by, and before either girl knew how it happened, evening had arrived.
