Excerpt from book:

Wake Up!

 

Crash! Bang! The sound of thunder came booming from Kate Farber’s radio.

That got Kate up fast.

“Just kidding about the thunder,” said Amos-on-the-Airwaves. “There’s not a cloud in our beautiful Tuckertown sky.”

Amos liked to keep his listeners laughing.

Kate grabbed her glasses from the night table and put them on. Her tan frames looked great with her dark brown hair and her freckles.

Then she grabbed her phone. It was right next to where her glasses had been. Kate was neat. She liked to know where her things were and lined them up in straight rows.

Kate was also a sensible girl. On school days, she made sure to call her best friend, Lucie Lopez. Without Kate’s wake-up call, Lucie would be late every day.

Kate speed-dialed Lucie’s number. She knew the special dog-bark ring that would be waking her friend. They both had the same ring. Arfa-arf!

Lucie and Kate loved dogs, and each wished she could have one. But they lived right next door to each other in garden apartments where the rule was NO DOGS ALLOWED.

So instead of real dogs, Kate and Lucie had sheets and pajamas with dogs on them. They had socks and underwear with dogs on them.

Kate had knickknack shelves with little glass dogs. Of course, they were lined up in neat rows.

Lucie had a collection of stuffed dogs scattered all over her room. Lucie was as messy as Kate was neat. She also had piles of dog books. She had read every single one, so she knew a lot about dogs.

Arfa-arf! Lucie’s phone was ringing for the third time. Finally she picked up.

“Hullo,” Lucie said, sounding half asleep. “What’s up?”

“Obviously, not you,” said Kate. “Hurry or we’ll be late for school.”

There was silence at the other end.

“Are you asleep again?” said Kate.

More silence.

“Wake up! Wake up!” said Kate.

“I’m up! I’m up!” said Lucie, almost falling out of her bed.

“See you outside.”

Lucie and Kate had been friends since they were little, and they were in the same class at Tucker Elementary School.

They each got dressed.

Lucie put on her favorite pink poodle T-shirt. She loved pink. She also loved ribbons. She picked out a barrette that had curly pink ribbons hanging down. She pushed her ginger-colored bangs out of her eyes to admire the ribbons.

Kate didn’t care much about ribbons. She put on her bulldog T-shirt. Then she quickly tied her hair in two perfect pigtails.

They didn’t know it, but at the exact same time, both girls were putting on their pink dog-bone necklaces. They were the most amazing necklaces in the universe. Kate and Lucie wore them every day.

After breakfast, they met outside and started on their way to school.

“Ms. Lu said we’re going to do something fun today,” said Lucie.
